Visitors

You are welcome to have visitors during visiting times on your unit but please let your visitors know that you may be required to attend a therapy session or a procedure during this time.

A general principle of rehabilitation is that therapy is not the place for visitors as it can be challenging and at times embarrassing for some of these activities to be undertaken in front of others. If support people require training or teaching they will be invited to participate in therapy sessions.

We ask that all visitors wash their hands before and after visiting. They should also use the alcohol handrub throughout their visit.

The doors to the rehabilitation building are on a time lock and will shut promptly at 8pm.

Visitors should leave the building prior to this time. If essential or previously arranged with ward staff, visitors can call the Helpdesk on (08) 6152 2222 to have it opened.
