Visit Modbury Hospital
In order to slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) visitor restrictions have been put in place.
Visitors will only be allowed on site for compassionate reasons or End of Life/ Palliative Care.
For Outpatients and Emergency, Maternity, Paediatric, Palliative, end of life or critically unwell patients see the Visiting public hospitals page for specific visitor information.
All visitors to public hospitals must provide proof of a TGA approved COVID-19 vaccination status upon entry (unless they have an approved medical exemption, or a child 12 years or less).
Unvaccinated visitors will be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the hospital. In all settings a mask will be required. However, in some settings with vulnerable patients, unvaccinated visitors may also need to wear a gown, gloves and eyewear.
All persons entering NALHN sites are required to:
> QR code or provide details if unable to QR Code on entry as requested
> Perform hand hygiene on entry
> Maintain 1.5 metres physical distancing.
> Wear a face mask (masks will be available at Concierge and cloth masks are not permitted to be worn at any NALHN site by staff or visitors)
Visitors play an important part in any patient’s hospital stay and are welcome at the hospital.
Visiting hours are between 11.00 am and 8.00 pm daily in most wards, with a designated patient rest period between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm.
- Visiting is at the discretion of nursing and midwifery staff, from whom permission should first be obtained. If visiting hours are unsuitable, please discuss this with nursing and midwifery staff, as we may be able to make special arrangements.
- Food, sweets and drinks for patients must be checked with the nursing staff, as many patients are on special diets.
- Visitors are requested to show consideration for the patients they are visiting and for other patients in the hospital, by behaving in a quiet manner, and by observing any restrictions on visitation made for their benefit.
- Visiting children are the responsibility of their parent or adult carer and must be supervised at all times while in the hospital, and noise kept to a minimum.
- Furniture is placed to ensure rapid access to rooms in emergencies. This also means that seating for visitors is restricted.
More information including fees and exemptions are available on the metropolitan hospitals car parking page.
The hospital is wheelchair accessible and there are toilets for people with disabilities. Please ask at Reception.
