We thank you for your understanding and cooperation, as we keep our focus on caring for our patients.

Visiting Guidelines

  • All visitors to the ward have to register before they enter.
  • Keep visits short as our patients need rest to recover.
  • If treatment is required for the patient, our staff may ask visitors to leave.
  • Be considerate and keep noise levels down. Noise is a source of stress that interrupts patients' sleep and rest. 
  • Refrain from eating by the patients' bedside to reduce infection, and to ensure a clean and comfortable environment for patients.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, or sanitise them with alcohol rub before and after visiting a patient.
  • Switch your mobile phone to "SILENT" mode, and speak softly on the phone to avoid disturbing patients. In the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and High Dependency, the use of mobile phones is NOT allowed in patient's room.
  • Smoking or drinking alcohol is not allowed on hospital premises.

INFECTION CONTROL: If you are feeling unwell, you will not be allowed into the wards. Always exercise good hand hygiene by using hand sanitiser or washing your hands before and after you enter the wards. At times, you may be asked to leave the ICU temporarily when our doctors or nurses are making their rounds. Kindly wait at the Visitors Lounge as we check on your loved one. We seek your kind understanding.
