Visiting restrictions eased at Portiuncula University Hospital

Great news for announced by Portiuncula University Hospital, it has eased patient visiting restrictions and is now facilitating visits to patients in its wards by appointment. 
Appointments are staggered across all ward areas each day between 3pm and 4.30pm to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to patients, family members and staff. Each patient can have one nominated visitor daily for up to 20 minutes.
The family member or visitor should contact the relevant ward between 11am and 12.30pm between Monday and Friday, and weekend visiting must be arranged on Friday morning.
Nominated visitors should then arrive five to ten minutes prior to their appointed time.
Entrance to the hospital will be via the Emergency Department where ‘Meet and Greet’ staff will check the nominated visitor from the approved visiting list and will ask the relevant COVID-19 screening questions.
Visitors will be required to follow public health guidance, including wearing a surgical mask and performing good hand hygiene regularly during their visit to the hospital.
Children under the age of 16 are still not permitted to visit the hospital and visiting on critical and compassionate grounds will continue at the discretion of the ward or unit manager, or designated nurse in charge.
