At Stirling Hospital we are continually monitoring the changing COVID-19 situation and as the borders are now open we are putting in place these additional measures to ensure the health and safety of our staff, medical and allied health practitioners, patients and visitors:
- For all persons attending Stirling Hospital, you will need to enter through the main entrance and must complete a COVID Safe Check In and complete COVID screening with Hospital staff. It is Stirling Hospital’s preference that all persons entering our health care setting be vaccinated.
- Level 3 surgical masks must be worn by all persons whilst in the Hospital. Cloth masks are not permitted in our healthcare setting and surgical masks will be made available if required
- Any person that has been overseas or interstate (state with community transmission) in the past seven days will not be able to enter the Hospital
- The patient / client should be the only one entering for admission or for a consultation / appointment.
- Patients attending the hospital for a face-to-face pre-admission appointment need to be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination will be required on arrival for your appointment. If you are not fully vaccinated, please book a telephone consultation.
- If a patient / client requires a support person, carer, parent, or partner this person will need to be fully vaccinated. Requests outside of this guideline will be considered and risk assessed on a case by case basis
- Only one fully vaccinated parent / carer can accompany a paediatric patient / client. Requests outside of this guideline will be considered and risk assessed on a case by case basis
- There is a maximum of one visitor per patient at a time. Visitors will have restricted movement throughout the Hospital
- No children (under the age of 12 years old) are permitted to visit
- Social distancing must be maintained
