In view of the evolving national situation with respect to the COVID pandemic, the Board of Management wishes to remind the public that regular visiting hours at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital continue to be suspended with exceptions being permitted for the following categories of patients:
- Patients receiving palliative care and end-of-life care.
- Pregnant patients who are in active labour.
- Very ill patients who will be identified by the Department of Nursing Services.
- Paediatric patients. A parent or guardian will be allowed to stay with these patients around the clock.
Visitation to these categories of patients will now be limited to a single visitor per patient and managed through the Department of Nursing Services. Whilst there will be no regular visiting, provision will continue to be made for the single relative or caregiver to drop off toiletries, fresh laundry and small sundries (eg. spectacles, dental aides etc.) for patients. These deliveries will be facilitated between 12:00 pm to 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Board of Management thanks you for your usual support and cooperation, and reminds all persons visiting the QEH that all COVID-19 protocols remain in effect.
