Blackrock Clinic hospital visiting protocols are reviewed in line with best clinical practice.
Patient safety remains our priority, so we respectfully ask all patients and their families to consider maintaining a no visitor policy unless it is deemed necessary, or of benefit to the patient’s wellbeing.
Should you attend as a visitor, please adhere to the following guidelines:
- Visiting is allowed between the hours of 5.30pm – 7pm.
- One visitor only per patient.
- Wear a facemask at all times within the hospital environment.
- Limit the visit to 15 minutes.
Any visiting restrictions are in place to help protect our patients, so thank you for respecting our protocols. Everyone plays a role in keeping our patients safe – it takes a team!
