Service changes

From Monday 5 October 2020
  • Visitors strictly between 2.30-4.30pmOnly one visitor per day per patient.
  • Public access only through the Village Avenue Main Entrance (weekdays and weekends) and former main entrance near the Gippsland Cancer Care Centre (weekdays only).
  • You must not visit if you are unwell. Physical distancing restrictions apply. Visitors must provide contact details, be screened and have their temperature checked on arrival.
  • No visitors under the age of 16.
  • Recently returned travellers, a person who has a confirmed case of coronavirus and a person who has been in contact with such a person are prohibited from visiting patients. 
  • People supporting palliative patients are exempt from the restrictions however must be in good health and undergo a temperature check on arrival. A maximum of 2 visitors at any one time.
  • Maternity: A partner may remain with the woman throughout her labour and birth and for as long as desired afterwards. A partner or support person can then visit once per day for a maximum of two hours. Only the partner or support person may visit the woman during her hospital stay. Please note LRH does not have facilities to support an extended stay by a partner or support person i.e. over multiple days/nights. Statement from Prof Euan Wallace AM, CEO of Safer Care Victoria: "The revised restrictions on hospital maternity visitors are based on the advice from Safer Care Victoria and our state's leading maternity experts - our most senior obstetricians and midwives. Partners can remain with the woman throughout her labour and birth and for as long as desired afterwards. Subsequent visits are allowed for up to two hours a day. This has not changed. These restrictions provide clear guidance for women and their care providers allowing them to prepare for the birth of their baby. Only the partner (or support person) of the woman may visit her during her hospital stay. Other visitors are not allowed. This is new and will keep new mothers, their babies and hospital staff safer. We know that this will be challenging for patients including new parents, but the restrictions balance the needs and preferences of women with the need to care for them and their babies in an environment free from COVID-19."
  • Paediatrics: Only 1 parent will be allowed to provide support to a paediatric patient.
