Novel coronavirus (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.)
We ask that our patients have a maximum of two visitors for the duration of their stay, in line with state guidelines, and that no other visitors access our hospital during this time.
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 under the age of 16;
- are feeling unwell.
This decision has been made in the best interests of you, your family, all our patients and caregivers, and to help us protect the more vulnerable in our facilities.
Thank you in advance for your support of this.
Please read our latest advice about what to do if you have an upcoming admission or want to visit someone in hospital.
If you are seeking assistance, or testing for coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit your nearest COVID-19 clinic; or contact your GP.
