Visitor restrictions will ease at Bendigo Health, in the hospital and residential aged care facilities from today.
From Thursday 18 February patient/residents are restricted to one visitor, once per day. Visiting will be available between 3pm and 7pm daily. Bookings will be required with the unit or facility and visitors will need to make contact prior to their arrival to arrange. Visits are for a maximum of one hour.
Special circumstances will still apply for some patients, including for palliative care, maternity and children.
All visitors must wear a mask and will be screened on entry.
Flowers and sealed food are welcome to be dropped to staff in the Atrium. Take away food delivers are not permitted.
For appointments, patients can be accompanied by a carer if required.
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
