Hirondelle Private Hospital is open for business and continues to provide rehabilitation services and medical (non COVID-19) care to meet the needs of patients without interruption to our hospital’s capacity and operations.
In the interests of our patients, staff, doctors and visitors, as a Healthe Care-operated hospital we have implemented additional precautionary measures in accordance with COVID-19 regulations.
Important steps we’ve taken in response to COVID-19 to ensure a safe hospital environment is maintained for our patients, staff and doctors:
- Our hospital has restricted visitors to 1 hour daily, and maximum 1 visitor per patient.
- Our hospital access point is staffed and limited only to primary access via the hospital’s front reception.
- All who enter our hospital are required to complete a screening questionnaire – around returning from overseas travel; being in contact with a case of COVID-19; and displaying flu-like or respiratory symptoms.
- Mandatory temperature screening is taken on entry to the hospital with infection control and safe hand hygiene routines enforced.
- Hospital management continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely in conjunction government advisements and the relevant authorities, to ensure clear processes and policies to manage through all possible scenarios while mitigating the risks associated with COVID-19.
- Our Healthe Care executive, hospital management and key functional areas across the business continue to meet regularly to plan for, and manage through all other considerations as they arise.
