Visiting patients and aged care residents

In line with state guidelines, BHS patients and aged care residents are currently able to have one visitor per day for up to one hour per day unless there is an allowable exemption. Exemptions must be discussed and approved by the Acute Unit or Residential Aged Care manager or their delegate.

All visits must be booked at least one day in advance, call BHS main reception on 03 5728 0200 during business hours (Mon – Fri 8:30am to 5pm) to discuss a visitor booking –  you must advise reception if you have travelled to a place where there is known community transmission of COVID- 19 in the past 14 days so that a risk assessment can be completed.

Visitors must complete entry screening and comply with BHS visitor guidelines: Click here to view full guidlines for visiting at BHS.

The COVID-19 environment can change – we recommend you call ahead of your visit to check current guidelines.
