Patients at Cabrini’s hospitals and palliative care facility can have one visitor per day, for up to two hours.

Visiting hours are between 10.00am – 8.00pm (visitors are permitted before this time if they are collecting a patient who is being discharged).

These restrictions are an important measure to protect our vulnerable patients and residents, staff and the community. 

Exceptions to our no visitor policy include:

  • Paediatric patients
  • Patients who require assistance with communication, wayfinding, mobility, personal care or behaviour management
  • Patients with a complex disability
  • Patients with a life-threatening medical condition
  • Patients who are dying and/or receiving end of life care
  • Patients attending an outpatient appointment (one person may attend; however, patients are encouraged to attend alone if possible)
  • Maternity patients (partner/designated support person only)

These exceptions will be managed on a case-by-case basis, by nurse managers and nurse directors.

Visitors aged under 16 will not be permitted at this time, unless under special circumstances as determined by our clinical leaders.

All visitors need to adhere to Cabrini’s screening processes and infection control requirements. This includes providing details for contact tracing purposes, temperature screening, wearing a single-use mask and social distancing.

We understand these restrictions may be difficult, but we are asking for your ongoing support as we work through this together.
