Visiting Hours

Visiting hours are based on patients’ needs. Visiting is overseen by the nursing staff to ensure a quiet and supportive environment, including adequate rest for patients. It is recommended that visitors co-ordinate with relatives and friends to visit, in order to avoid more than two visitors by the patient’s bedside at any time.

General visiting hours
Monday to Sunday
10.00 to 11.30
15.00 to 20.00

Note: Visiting hours may vary according to specific ward policy. Further information can be found in the relevant sections of this site.

Visitors should be prepared to leave the patient’s room when visiting times are over.

Children under 12 are generally not allowed to visit patients. In circumstances that warrant visiting, this is discussed with the ward manager in order to obtain permission. All visiting children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Exceptions to the visiting hours policy are at the staff’s discretion, as long as this does not disrupt care or treatment and is not disturbing to other patients.

Space and facilities are limited and overnight stays are not normally permitted. However, when the patient’s condition is critical, the doctor/nurse in charge may authorise extended overnight stays for patients’ carers.

There may be times when visitors are asked to vacate the patient’s room, such as when treatment is administered or at the request of the physician/nurse.

Respect to all patients and staff in the ward must be maintained at all times during visiting. While we acknowledge that these may be difficult circumstances both for the patient and visitors, it is imperative to note that no aggressive behaviour, shouting, foul language or lack of respect is tolerated.

Please ensure that as a visitor you are free of colds and flu, including symptoms of fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, or contagious conditions. Consuming food and beverages in patients’ rooms is prohibited. Please use designated areas indicated by ward staff.

Please refrain from taking photos and videos within the hospital
