COVID-19 changes to visiting our hospitals

Increased restrictions are in place for south East Queensland from 4pm, Saturday 31 July 2021.

Visitors are restricted across all Metro North Health facilities. You can only visit someone in hospital if you are:

  • the parent, guardian or carer for a patient under the age of 18
  • visiting a patient who is at their end of life
  • a partner and/or support person for a patient admitted for care related to their pregnancy
  • support worker or informal carer (including family and friends) providing support for someone with a disability.

Any person permitted to enter a hospital must not enter, or remain on, the premises without wearing a face mask. You also must not visit our hospitals if you have been to an interstate hotspot or COVID-19 exposure venue in the last 14 days, even if you have returned a negative COVID-19 test.

Standard COVID-19 visitor restrictions still apply at this facility. This means you must not visit this facility if:

  • You are unwell
  • You have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been asked to isolate or home-quarantine
  • You have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting test results (unless your test has been taken in accordance with a surveillance testing obligation)
  • You have had contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • You have a fever (37.5 degrees or more) or history of fever (e.g. nights sweats, chills) or acute respiratory infection (e.g. cough, shortness of breath, sore throat), runny nose, vomiting or nausea, diarrhoea, loss of smell or loss of taste.
  • You have returned from overseas (other than a safe travel zone country), an interstate exposure venue or a hotspot in the last 14 days and do not have an exemption to visit.

If you are unsure if visitor restrictions apply to you – please call ahead and ask the ward or facility before you arrive.

Please make a booking online for your vaccination (phone bookings not available). Where possible we will vaccinate people without a booking, but clinics are currently booked out.

Viral fragments of SARS-CoV-2 have been confirmed in sewage during recent routine testing upstream from the Luggage Point and Oxley Creek Wastewater Treatment Plants, offering a timely reminder that anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should get tested. The fragments could indicate the presence of an undiagnosed case of COVID-19 in the community or that a case who is no longer infectious is still shedding fragments of the virus. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting, and loss of taste or smell.

Talk about a triple threat! 🔬 Professor Ian Yang (left), Dr Fran Kinnear (middle), and Associate Professor Henry Marshall (right) are all contributing to lung and thoracic research, despite working on different individual and team projects. 🥽🧬🧪

"We take insights from the lab straight to the bedside, it's direct patient care from acute emergency to critical care," Associate Professor Marshall said.

"It's not always easy but if you're willing to take the risk and the opportunity, then you've got to go for it," Dr Kinnear said.

"The strength of collaboration from both the clinical and research teams at TPCH mean that we're advancing the healthcare on offer here for our community, to have it recognised is a great honour for us all," Professor Yang said.

Professor Yang, Dr Kinnear and Associate Professor Marshall were each recognised in our Research Excellence Awards for their contribution to individual and team research projects over the last year, based out of #TPCH. 🌟
