Temperature checks upon entry

From Monday, March 23, all visitors to all Western Health sites will have their temperatures checked upon entrance, to minimise the risk of COVID-19 for all patients and staff.

Western Health has also implemented new rules for visitors at all of our sites, with the aim of minimising the risk of coronavirus for all of our patients and staff.

The following restrictions now apply:

  • Visiting hours 4pm-8pm only (except for Maternity and Paediatrics)

  • ONE (1) visitor per patient in all areas

  • No visitors aged under 16 permitted (unless they are the parents of hospitalised children)

  • Exemptions to these visiting rules will apply in special circumstances, such as palliative care.
