Visitor restrictions have eased at Bendigo Health, in the hospital and residential aged care facilities.
Visiting hours will return to 2-7pm daily. Patients will be restricted to three visitors at a time, however there will be no limitation on the number of visitors during visiting hours. Special circumstances and variations to these conditions will still apply for some patients, this includes palliative care, maternity and children. These must be discussed with the nurse in charge.
All visitors must wear a mask and will be screened on entry.
For appointments, patients can be accompanied by a carer if required.
Flowers and sealed food are welcome to be dropped off to staff in the Atrium, or Specialist Palliative Care and Evaluation Unit directly. Take away food deliveries are not permitted.
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
