Under the changes to Victoria's pandemic orders, hospitals are able to tailor their own visitor guidelines based on what is happening in the community.

COVID numbers are rising locally and as a result we have decided to further restrict hospital visiting hours.

Visiting hours will be daily 4pm-7pm.

This measure is being taken to reduce the risk of visitors spreading the virus to patients.

Maternity patients will be allowed 1 visitor between 4pm-7pm. Visitors must be immediate family such as a grandparent of a baby, a sibling of the baby (over the age of 16) or the sibling of the parents. No children under the age of 16 will be allowed into the Thomson maternity unit. All visitors must undergo a rapid antigen test (RAT) on arrival to the Thomson Unit and wear a surgical mask which will be supplied at the hospital's main entrance. Our Special Care Nursery is still off limits to all except the parents of the baby in our care.

The Avon Unit is managing COVID-positive patients and medical patients | If you are visiting a medical patient in Avon, please seek advice/approval from the nurse in charge.

No visitors to Nicholson Rehab | This unit is managing COVID-positive patients and COVID risk. As patients in this unit may be severely unwell, we ask for your understanding as we seek to reduce any further risk of transmission and infection.

Visitor guidelines for all other areas:

  • Visiting hours:4pm-7pm daily.
  • One (1) visitor between 4pm-7pm.
  • These rules apply to all of our inpatient units except for areas caring for patients with COVID-19
  • Emergency Department: 1 support person per patient
  • Cancer Care services: 1 support person per patient
  • Outpatient services: 1 support person per patient
  • Thomson women and children's unit: Birthing women or patients in maternity may have their partner or support person with them for an unlimited time. No overnight stays. Children in hospital will continue to have the support of two parents/guardians for an unlimited time. One parent/guardian is able to stay with the child overnight
  • Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) Visitors to the Thomson, Macalister and Flynn units will be required to take a rapid antigen test (RAT) on arrival. This will be supplied by the unit you are visiting.
  • End of life support: No limit on the number of visitors per day and no time limit. Two visitors at a time with the patient
  • Vaccination statusVisitors must show proof of their vaccination status and wear a N95 mask supplied at our entrances. If you are unable to, entry will be refused. Please note, all visitors will be required to wear a N95 while COVID-19 numbers in the community are high. This is at the direction of the hospital's Chief Executive.
  • Visitor check-in: Visitors will be required to be screened and have their temperature checked at our main entrances

Our tax time appeal for mums-to-be

Help us bring the next generation of Gippslanders into the world safely. Support our appeal to purchase a new ultrasound machine.

The latest ultrasound equipment will provide our obstetricians and midwives with superior imaging quality of an unborn baby to monitor their growth and health. If we can pick up on changes in a baby's development, we may be in a better position to prevent complications during birth.
