We understand the importance of support from loved ones while patients are in hospital and strongly encourage family and friends to visit our patients during their stay. Children accompanied by an adult are also most welcome. Visiting hours are flexible and we encourage you to ask the ward staff about the best times to visit your relative or friend.
While you are visiting the ward, please be mindful of other patients nearby who are recovering from illness or injury. Please be aware that treating teams may be required to interrupt your visit to provide healthcare to the patient. The Nurse Unit Manager is responsible for the ward and may be required to restrict visitors during certain medical and nursing procedures or in an emergency situation. We kindly ask that visitors do not attend the hospital if they have a potentially infectious illness (e.g. coughs or colds, gastro symptoms).
Please note that access to the hospital is restricted between 9.00pm and 5.30am. If you require access outside of these hours, security can be contacted via the intercom that is based at the RBWH Main Entrance, Butterfield Street.
To contact a ward, phone our friendly Switchboard team on (07) 3646 8111 and ask to be put through to the relevant ward.
