Visit Modbury Hospital

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) visitor restrictions have been put in place.

In general, visitors will be limited to one person per patient.

Additional visitors can be allowed for compassionate reasons such as end of life and palliative care and maternity. For full details, please see the NALHN Visitor Allowances fact sheet (PDF 180KB) which will be updated from time to time as restrictions change.

In all health settings a surgical face mask will be required. However, in some settings such as high risk settings with vulnerable patients, visitors may also need to wear additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). If additional PPE is required for visitors the hospital will provide at ward level.

All persons entering NALHN sites are required to:

> QR code or provide details if unable to QR Code on entry as requested
> Perform hand hygiene on entry
> Maintain 1.5 metres physical distancing.
> Wear a face mask (masks will be available at Concierge and cloth masks are not permitted to be worn at any NALHN site by staff or visitors)

Visitors play an important part in any patient’s hospital stay and are welcome at the hospital.

Visiting hours are between 11.00 am and 8.00 pm daily in most wards, with a designated patient rest period between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm.

Please note:

  • Visiting is at the discretion of nursing and midwifery staff, from whom permission should first be obtained. If visiting hours are unsuitable, please discuss this with nursing and midwifery staff, as we may be able to make special arrangements.
  • Food, sweets and drinks for patients must be checked with the nursing staff, as many patients are on special diets.
  • Visitors are requested to show consideration for the patients they are visiting and for other patients in the hospital, by behaving in a quiet manner, and by observing any restrictions on visitation made for their benefit.
  • Visiting children are the responsibility of their parent or adult carer and must be supervised at all times while in the hospital, and noise kept to a minimum.
  • Furniture is placed to ensure rapid access to rooms in emergencies. This also means that seating for visitors is restricted.
