Visitor information

COVID-19 precautions

In the interests of protecting the safety of patients within our facilities, St John of God Health Care hospitals in Western Australia will only be permit visitors to enter a Western Australian St John of God Hospital if they can demonstrate they:

  • have quarantined in WA for a period of 14 days, and 
  • have had a negative COVID-19 test result within the last 3 days of that quarantine period.

Visitors will not be given an exemption to visit St John of God Health Care hospitals in Western Australia during their quarantine period.  

Visitors who are quarantining should not be residing with family members who are visiting the hospital.

In the absence of visiting in person, we will work closely with patients and loved ones to facilitate interaction via video communications mediums (Skype, Facetime etc.) 

Two visitors per patient

We ask that our patients have a maximum of two visitors at a time throughout their stay, in line with state guidelines, and that no other visitors access our hospital during this time. Children can now visit, however they are included in the two visitor per patient limit. Find out more about visitor restrictions.

As usual, exceptions may apply in extenuating circumstances including end of life care at the discretion of the nurse manager.

All visitors can expect to be screened on entry and cannot visit if they:

  • have travelled overseas or interstate within 14 days of the planned visit;
  • have recently come into contact with a person who has a confirmed case of coronavirus;
  • are feeling unwell.

While some COVID-19 restrictions are being gradually eased, we are maintaining our precautionary measures to help keep our patients safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you in advance for your support of this.
