Visitors at Kerang District Health

Kerang District Health recognises the importance of family, carer and visitor participation in patient care and the role they can play in the recovery process.

Kerang District Health supports a culture of flexibility in special circumstances through open visiting hours. In special circumstances, visitors are able to stay with their loved one outside of general visiting hours. Visitors attending outside general visiting hours must be authorised to stay by the nurse in charge.

There may be times when visitors are asked to leave or to move to lounge areas to enable staff to attend to a patient’s care or to provide appropriate patient privacy.

Patients have the right to determine who may visit them and when they want to receive visitors.

Patient preferences are respected at all times; patients may at times request “no visitors”.
