New visiting rules at hospital


PENINSULA Health has changed their visiting rules to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Visitors are no longer permitted to enter the Intensive Care Unit, Acute Medical Surgical Unit and Ward 5GN at Frankston Hospital.

Peninsula Health CEO Felicity Topp said in a social media announcement that “with increasing numbers of patients coming into the organisation we are concerned for your safety and our staff’s safety.”

“We’ve made a very tough decision about ceasing all visitors to areas where we do have COVID-19 positive patients. I know this is extremely difficult for people and we do understand, therefore we will try and facilitate conversation, discussions, and updates of patients’ conditions using technology that we can provide to you and your loved one while they are in hospital.”
