‘No Visitors’ policy now in place at Braemar Hospital

Tonight at 11.59pm we will be moving to Covid-19 Alert Level 3.

At alert Level 3 we are operating at a reduced level and no visitors can be permitted in the hospital.

We recognise how important the support of friends and whānau is for our patients.

However, this is an extraordinary situation and a necessary precaution for the safety of our patients, staff, and community.

An exception to this rule:
• Paediatrics – Children may have two caregivers with them; these two caregivers must be adults, and it is acceptable for both caregivers to be in the room with the patient at the same time.  This is to ensure that if one parent needs to take a break, the child is not left alone.  These two adults must not have other children in attendance

We want to remind everyone to practice effective hand hygiene through washing with soap for 60 seconds and to maintain appropriate social distancing by staying in your “bubble”.

Stay Safe.
