Visiting times

Visiting family and friends in hospital can aid in their recovery. We welcome visitors but ask that the following are observed.

Changes to patient visiting – COVID-19

To help keep our patients, staff, visitors and community safe we have changed our visiting hours and introduced some visiting restrictions.

The new visiting hours are restricted to one hour in the morning (any time between 10am to 12pm) and one hour in the evening (any time between 5pm to 7pm).

No visitors are permitted for patients who have:

  • tested positive to COVID-19, or
  • are waiting to be tested or
  • are awaiting results

If you are visiting an adult or child inpatient:

  • only two adults can visit at any one time, with a maximum of two visitors per patient, per day
  • visiting hours are restricted to one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening
  • if visiting a maternity patient, one adult birthing partner only is permitted to accompany a woman in labour and to the postnatal wards
  • children who are inpatients with confirmed COVID-19 are permitted a maximum of one adult visitor per day

If you are visiting an outpatient or emergency patient

  • one adult only may accompany a patient to an Emergency Department or a hospital-based outpatient appointment (including day surgery).

Children aged 16 years and under are not permitted to visit patients at any time.

These visiting restrictions may be reconsidered under exceptional or compassionate circumstances – please discuss with the hospital treating team.

Please remember to keep a safe distance between yourself and others and practice social distancing at all times.

Visiting hours – mental health units

Banksia, Karri and Leschen (open) wards

Please contact ward staff on 9391 2104 to arrange visits.

Please be aware that nursing staff on individual wards may adjust the visiting hours to meet the medical requirements of the patients on that ward.

Only visit when you are feeling well. If you are feeling unwell (e.g. you have diarrhoea, vomiting or have signs of a cold or flu) please stay home, as this will prevent the spread of infection and help in your family member's or friend's speedy recovery.

Visitors should never touch wounds, dressings, intravenous lines or other equipment being used to treat a patient.
