In line with the latest Department of Health directives, visitors are currently not permitted at Cabrini’s hospitals or care facilities.

We know this will be very challenging for many families, however it is another important precaution to further protect our patients, residents, staff and community during this latest COVID-19 outbreak.

Exceptions to our visitor restrictions will only be made in very limited circumstances, and will be managed on a case-by-case basis. This includes visitors for:

  • paediatric patients (parent/guardian may attend)
  • patients who require assistance with communication, wayfinding, mobility, personal care, language support or behaviour management
  • patients with a complex disability
  • patients with a life-threatening medical condition
  • patients who are dying and/or receiving end of life care
  • maternity patients (partners may attend)

Patients must attend the emergency department and outpatient appointments alone if it is safe and practical for them to do so. A support person may attend under exceptional circumstances.

Please respect our staff and adhere to all directives, as we work through this together.

We will continue monitoring these restrictions and making further adjustments as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so.
