All visitors are asked to observe visiting hours and respect the privacy of our patients.
COVID-19 VISITOR RESTRICTIONS
Hospital visiting hours are reduced, in accordance with Queensland Health visitor restrictions whilst balancing the needs of patients and their families/carers with the risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19).
Hand hygiene, infection control, visitor screening including temperature checks and social distancing also continues, for the safety and wellbeing of everyone at our hospital.
No more than two visitors may visit a patient at any one time, up to two hours daily provided this is within our hospital’s visiting hours – currently:
Thank you for your understanding and continued support to keep our community safe.
Visitors must report to the staff station on arrival to our Special Care Unit.
If you are visiting a patient in twin share accommodation, visits are to be conducted in common areas. In consideration of all patients and visitors, please be mindful of noise levels when using our common areas.
In accordance with Queensland legislation, smoking is prohibited on Belmont Private Hospital grounds, and a five metre buffer beyond our boundary. This applies to all patients, visitors and staff at all times and includes all smoking products including regular cigarettes and e-cigarettes. Please observe no smoking signage around our hospital grounds, as Queensland Health can issue on the spot fines to people in breach of this legislation.
All patients admitted to hospital agree to attend our group programs, therefore visits during program times are not allowed. As this is a contractual agreement, non-attendance is permitted only under exceptional circumstances, and with authorisation from the patient's treating Psychiatrist.
Children are welcome at Belmont Private Hospital but must be supervised by an adult at all times.
For patients admitted to our Special Care Unit, please liaise directly with the unit if you plan to visit with children.
