Visiting Hours

                   

Effective 20 March we are implementing a consistent approach for visiting numbers and hours across the inpatient/resident units of KDH.

The same restrictions will apply in the Acute inpatient unit to those implemented in Glenarm.

 

Visiting hours will be restricted to:

           

3pm to 4pm daily

 

Patients will be allowed 2 visitors only per day with visits limited to no more than 1/2 hour

 

Strict Hand Hygiene is to be adhered to at ALL TIMES

 

-       Visitors are required to report to the nurse’s station on arrival where a COVID-19 screening tool will be conducted

-       Visitors are then to proceed straight to the patient’s room and avoid all contact with other patients and staff where avoidable

Thank you for your cooperation in following our visitor’s guidelines which we have put in place to prevent to COVID -19.  Our patients are vulnerable and these measure have been put in place to protect their health and wellbeing.  

 

 

Kerang District Health recognises the importance of family, carer and visitor participation in patient care and the role they can play in the recovery process.

Visitors are welcome at Kerang District Health.

Kerang District Health supports a culture of flexibility in special circumstances through open visiting hours. In special circumstances, visitors are able to stay with their loved one outside of general visiting hours. Visitors attending outside general visiting hours must be authorised to stay by the nurse in charge.

There may be times when visitors are asked to leave or to move to lounge areas to enable staff to attend to a patient’s care or to provide appropriate patient privacy.

Patients have the right to determine who may visit them and when they want to receive visitors.

Patient preferences are respected at all times; patients may at times request “no visitors”.
