We have been temporary restricting visitors to our hospital to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Due to the recent circumstances, we are easing visitor restrictions,
beginning Monday, March 6, 2023.
Note that the current visitor restrictions continue to apply to our COVID-19 inpatients.
Visiting Hours: 14:00 – 16:00/2 pm – 4 pm on Weekdays, Weekends and Holidays
Designated Visiting Places: Inpatient Wards (Single rooms, Shared rooms and Day rooms)
When visiting a shared room, a patient and his/her visitor must stay inside the pulled bedside curtain. No visitation is allowed outside the hospital wards.
- Visitors must be the patient’s family or their equivalents. However, anyone who falls under any of the following is NOT permitted to visit the patient.
* Is currently infected with COVID-19 or has similar symptoms of COVID-19,
* Has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and also had symptom onset within 10 days.
* Has been in close contact with someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection within 7 days.
* Is currently waiting for COVID-19 test results.
- One healthy visitor (15 years old or +) is allowed to see the patient once a day, for 15 minutes. A visitor who needs a chaperone can bring one chaperone per visit.
- All visitors are required to pre-signup for visitation. The patient him/herself OR the visitor needs to ask/contact the ward nurses at least one day before the visitation. For any non-pre-signup visits to a patient in critical condition, the patient’s attending doctor is to determine whether he/she can have a visitor.
- No eating or drinking is allowed for patients and visitors during visitation.
- Upon arrival in the hospital, all visitors must take their body temperature at the main entrance. Visitors with a fever of 37.5℃ or over are NOT permitted to see the patient. In the hospital building, all visitors must wear a facemask at all times and clean their hands and fingers with hand sanitiser.
- All visitors are required to sign in at the visitor reception desk on 1F and fill out a visiting form provided at the desk. The form contains COVID-19 symptom screening questionnaire. Visitors with any symptoms on the questionnaire may not be allowed to see the patient.
