Maternity Visiting Hours

COVID-19 UPDATE: CHANGES TO HURSTVILLE MATERNITY VISITING RESTRICTIONS: 16 December 2021

Per NSW Health Directive to ensure the safety of our patients and staff visitors are not permitted to our facility. We do apologise for the inconvenience of this change, however the safety of our Patients and Staff are of the utmost importance.

Only Partner of Mother are permitted to our Maternity unit.

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.
