Visiting hospitalised patients
At this time, it is possible to visit hospitalised patients, except in the Women’s Clinic where visiting is still prohibited. In the Maternity Ward, family rooms are open and both parents can stay in available rooms after the delivery. Visits by other family members or other people are not allowed in order to protect mothers and newborn children.
Visiting patients admitted to the hospital is possible on work days from 15:00-19:00 and on weekends from 12:00-16:00. Patients can see one visitor at a time. We still ask you to consider whether the visit is truly necessary and we recommend that you do not bring small children to the hospital.
As of Wednesday, 8 July, patients receiving out-patient care will no longer be tested for Covid-19, but patients should stay at home if they display symptoms of viral disease. In the Women’s Clinic, women coming to give birth are still tested for COVID-19. Also, both the woman giving birth and the accompanying ohter parent need to fill out a health declaration upon admittance to the hospital.
There is a disinfectant station set up at the entrance to the hospital where patients and accompanying persons can disinfect their hands and in case of respiratory symptoms, get a surgical mask from the reception desk. There are no longer any check-up points at entrances and patients will be advised to enter by a hospital employee.
Patients who have been referred to receive day procedures and scheduled treatments will no longer be tested for Covid-19. Testing will be carried out on patients who display respiratory symptoms, if necessary.
The on-call doctor will decide on the testing of patients admitted into emergency care.
