Visitor screening at all hospital entrances will end this Sunday, 31 January meaning that from Monday, 1 February there will be no visitor screening at our facilities.
The screeners have done an excellent job in helping to keep us all safe however, screening is not mandatory at Alert Level 1 and they are being redeployed to other roles within Counties Manukau Health.
We need your help to keep everyone safe
From Monday, 1 February we are asking our visitors, including outpatients and support persons to use the NZ COVID Tracer app to scan our QR code each time you visit our hospital and clinics.
This code will be displayed at the entrances of all CM Health facilities.
We also ask that you use hand gel when entering the hospital, adhere to our visiting policy, and stay home and call Healthline on 0800 611 116 if you feel unwell.
Our Visitor Policy
As has been the case for some time visiting hours are between 2pm and 8pm with no more than two people (including children) permitted per patient at one time.
A key support person can visit between 8am and 8pm or at all times by arrangement for compassionate reasons - please check with the charge nurse on the ward your family member or friend is on.
Children under the age of 16 may visit between 2pm and 8pm by arrangement for compassionate reasons - again, please check with the charge nurse on the ward your family member or friend is on.
We know this can be a difficult time for many of you who want to gather and be there for your loved one.
Please remember that this policy is in place to ensure your mum, dad, tamariki, moko, sister, brother, cousin or friend are provided the best possible care.
