Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospital is constantly updating measures put in place to safeguard patients, staff, and visitors accordingly. Therefore, we urge you to continuously check with us for updates. In line with these updates, patients continue to receive one visitor per day (registered next of kin ONLY) for 30 minutes. However, only visitors with SURGICAL MASKS will be allowed within patient areas. Please refer to the visiting hours page for the revised visiting times. To adequately assist emergency cases during this period, the Persons Under Investigations (PUI) isolation ward remains fully functional. The ward ensures that all emergency cases receive care while a Covid-19, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is being conducted.

Patients are only transferred to a general ward when deemed out of acute danger. Multi parameter monitors are utilized for constant monitoring. The nurse – patient ratio is 1: 4 or 1:3 depending on gravity of illness of the patients being attended to.
