Visiting hours for Flinders Medical Centre

The safety and wellbeing of people in our hospital during COVID-19 means that there may be restrictions for visitors. See details below.


From September 2022, visitors restrictions in our hospitals and health services are easing.

In general, there will be no visitor restrictions on adult and paediatric hospital inpatients, palliative care, end of life, and critically unwell inpatients.

Some visitor restrictions remain in place to protect the safety and welfare of people, including:

  • A limit of 2 visitors for COVID-19 positive inpatients
  • A limit of 1 visitor for adult and paediatric emergency and outpatients departments
  • A limit of 2 support people/visitors for delivery and postnatal wards
  • Adult ICU will follow standard unit protocol
  • A limit of 2 visitors for neonates/neonatal ICU inpatients

As always, exemptions to allow additional visitors are available in certain circumstances. Please speak with the treating Health Care team for more information.

Please adhere to the following when attending for your visit:

  • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste please do not enter until you are better and get tested immediately.
  • Do not enter if you are a known close contact of a COVID-19 positive case or are COVID-19 positive.
  • Please wear a face mask at all times.
  • Please use the alcohol-based hand rub provided to clean your hands when you enter and leave.

The continued safety and welfare of everyone in our hospital and health services is our priority.

Thank you for your understanding and for helping us keep our patients and community safe.
