Visiting times and restrictions
Note that the visiting times, restrictions and resting times may differ from hospital to hospital, and may furthermore differ for specific wards within a hospital. We kindly request visitors not to visit patients during patients’ official ’resting period’.
Detailed information about visiting times and restrictions applicable in each of our hospitals is featured on each of their dedicated web pages. Please visit the ‘Hospitals’ section on our website to obtain information, or consult the notice boards at our hospitals or the unit managers of specific wards in this regard.
In accordance with the regulations provided by the Department of Health for infection control purposes, we unfortunately do not allow children under the age of 12 years to visit paediatric patients. Furthermore only two visitors at at time may visit a patient in an intensive ward. Likewise, we don’t allow visitors to bring pets into our hospitals.
We request that only immediate family members visit patients in ICU. Note that our staff may at times ask visitors to leave the unit should it be necessary to perform any nursing procedures. Due to the nature of the intensive care required by patients, visitors are requested to inform the staff when entering the unit. Kindly obtain permission from the ICU staff to visit your loved one and take cognisance of their recommendations regarding time spent at the patient’s bedside. Also note that no flowers are permitted in the ICU.
