Please do not visit if you are unwell

For their own comfort and that of other patients, visitors should refrain from visiting patients in hospital if they are not well.

  • NO Visitors are permitted during NSW lockdown as per NSW Public Health orders
  • All visitors are subjected to COVID-19 screening on arrival to the hospital, and if they are clear, will be given visitors access.
  • All visitors will be asked to leave the hospital, if displaying any signs or symptoms of temperature, sore throat, or any other COVID-19 symptoms as per Health Department guidelines.

Hand Washing

As Special Care Nursery babies are vulnerable to infection, it is important to reduce this risk. Hands carry bacteria (germs) on the skin.

Bacteria are found on every surface you touch and can cause an infection in newborn babies, especially sick babies as their defence systems for fighting infection are not fully developed. All visitors are asked to wash their hands on entry to the nursery.

We also request that your partner limits touching/handling of your baby. Unwell babies need as much rest as possible. Over handling can use up precious energy.
