COVID-19 changes to visiting RBWH

Updated 26 March at 1:00pm

Visitor restrictions are currently in place at all Metro North Health facilities including hospitals, aged care and disability accommodation services.

In accordance with the requirements of operating within a restricted area, we are enacting the required visitor restrictions at the direction of the Chief Health Officer, which means that visitors to hospital are restricted to the following scenarios:

  • One parent or carer of a patient of the hospital who is a child;
  • One carer of a patient of the hospital who is being provided pregnancy or maternity related care (NB: up to two may be allowed for emergency or other compassionate grounds on a case-by-case basis);
  • One carer of a patient of the hospital who has a disability and requires support from a disability support worker or an informal carer;
  • Visitors for a patient of the hospital who is receiving end of life care (up to a limit imposed by the operator of the hospital – generally 2 persons at any one time);
  • Visitors to a patient of the hospital for emergency or other compassionate grounds (e.g. intensive care, emergency department) – (up to a limit imposed by the operator of the hospital – generally 1 person per day for approximately 2 hours)

All visitors are required to wear a mask.
