Dear Patients and Visitors,
Due to the escalating Covid 19 situation in Tasmania and with the aim of keeping both staff and patients safe, Hobart Private Hospital has made the difficult decision to restrict persons entering the hospital. Effective Thursday 6th January there will be limited visitors.
Visitors will be restricted to:
- People visiting patients receiving End of Life Care (only 2 nominated visitors and one at a time)
- Maternity support partner (not able to leave the unit if a boarder during the duration of admission).
- Carers as assessed on an individual basis for specific patient support
- One parent of a paediatric patient.
Any other exceptions will need additional approval via the Director of Nursing.
High risk, close contact and non-vaccinated visitors that fall into the above categories will not be permitted.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and as always we will keep you updated as this changes.
