Please consult with staff before bringing children into the Unit. This is to ensure that patients can have tests performed in that time and you can then have time with your family member/friend at the bedside. The visiting hours can vary if your family member/friend’s condition is serious. If you feel visiting hours are not appropriate or you are not being fairly treated please make an appointment to see the Nurse Unit manager as soon as possible.

To ensure patients are nursed in a safe and comfortable environment we ask all visitors to assist in the following:

  • Wash hands on entering the unit to prevent the spread of infection and wash again on exiting the unit if you have touched the patient;

  • Only two visitors are permitted at the bedside at any one time;

  • Limit each visit to only one hour as visits are often tiring for the patient;

  • Please consult with staff before bringing young children into the unit;

  • An appointment can be made with the treating doctor if you wish for clarification on your family member/friend’s condition. You will need to ask the nurse who is at the bedside on the day.

  • If you have a cold or you are unwell it would be recommended that you discuss your health status with staff before visiting the patient.
