Visitors & visiting hours
Families and friends are important to a patient's health, comfort, recovery and rehabilitation.
When is a good time to visit?
Our general visiting hours are from 7am until 9pm.
When are the quiet hours?
The hours between 9pm until 7am are considered the “quiet hours” for all wards or units. During this time we have a quiet environment in order to promote rest and recovery. If you wish to stay beyond 9pm, speak to the Nurse Manager of the ward area.
Which wards does this apply to?
Our general visiting hours apply to all of our wards. Some units may have different visiting times to meet the special needs of their patients, such as our psychiatric inpatient or Intensive Care Unit.
Contact staff on these wards before making a visit.
What should I do when I arrive?
When you arrive on our wards, check in at the main reception desk. One of our team will talk to you about the environment and how you can help promote rest and recovery.
Is it ok for children to visit?
We welcome all members of your family and friends to visit, including children.
Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
Am I well enough to visit?
You should not come to hospital if you have an infection such as a cold, flu or upset stomach. We recommend that visitors who may have gastroenteritis do not come into the hospital until 48 hours after their last symptom, as they could still be infectious.
We are here to help. If you have any questions about preventing infection contact us on (03) 9076 3139.
