Following Tasmanian Government advice, and to protect the safety of our staff and patients, unfortunately visitors are no longer permitted in our hospital. There are some limited exceptions where visitors are allowed, in particular for a parent with a dependent child in the hospital, if you are the partner or support person of someone giving birth, and some visits on compassionate grounds. Please speak to hospital staff if you think one of these might apply in your situation. We suggest that other visitors can telephone you via the switchboard or your direct line. We thank you for your understanding and assistance in implementing this policy.
Family and friends are welcome to visit from 12.30pm to 1.30pm and from 4.30pm to 8.00pm weekdays. On weekends, visitors are welcome between 12.00 noon and 8.00pm. Visits outside these hours are to be arranged in consultation with the Nurse Unit Manager.
When visiting the hospital, an adult should accompany children under the age of 12.
Visitors may be required to follow certain procedures, depending on the condition of the patient. The nursing staff will provide specific instructions for visiting these patients.
