COVID-19 Visitor Policy

Our hospital visitor policy has changed in response to the latest Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) update on COVID-19 and the community.

From 11 November 2020:

South Eastern Private Hospital has increased visiting hours with the following restrictions:

  • One household per patient, per day for a maximum two hours
  • The household can include a child below 16 years of age

The following visiting hours apply for all hospital units:

Monday to Friday

  • One session between 11:00 am and 7:00pm

Weekends / Public Holidays

  • One session between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm

Variation to these restrictions can be considered for patients in the following circumstances:

  • Palliative care / End of Life care
  • Specialist care giver (a person who provides significant specialised care directly to a patient)

As part of the Australian Government’s private hospital viability guarantee, South Eastern Private Hospital is part of the COVID-19 partnership agreement with the Victorian State Government, and part of the overall COVID-19 crisis management strategy.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and assure you of our continued commitment to the health and safety of patients, staff and the community.
