Critically ill patients

Family visitation may be allowed subject to special arrangements with the Matron on duty.

Non Covid-19 Areas

The general criteria for visiting are:

One visitor per day for a maximum of 30 minute. Family to decide who is the dedicated visitor.

One parent with a negative Covid-19 test will be permitted to sleep in with admitted paediatric patient. The other parent will be permitted to visit for 30 min per day and/or on discretion of the Matron on duty.

No parents can sleep in. One parent can stay in the ward for the day (with a negative covid-19 test) and the other parent can visit in the afternoon.
The only time both parents are allowed in the unit is when the child goes for surgery.

One parent may visit once a day. The duration of the visit will be at the discretion of the unit manager.

The husband/partner who have a current negative COVID-19 test can sleep over with the wife until the first day after the baby was born. There after he must stick to normal visiting hours as for the General wards. If the father does not have a current negative COVID-19 test, he will not be allowed to sleep over and will only visit as per general wards arrangement.
