These measures will be effective from April 1, 2020.

MEDICLINIC has announced that no visitors will be allowed to visit patients in the hospital.

In a statement issued yesterday, Mediclinic spokesperson Tertia Kruger said that the hospital was conscious of the evolving Covid-19 pandemic. “In an effort to ensure that we are best managing the risk to our patients and staff, the decision has been made to temporarily withdraw visiting hours. While we understand that visiting hours are important to our patients’ recovery, we believe that this is currently the most appropriate decision.”

These measures will be effective from April 1, 2020. 

There will be exceptions to these visitor measures, including visits to NICU (one parent at a time); visits to paediatric unit (one parent may live in with child); visits to maternity unit (father/partner may visit) and visits to critically ill patients (visits per arrangement with hospital management). 

“Mediclinic would like to emphasise that everyone within the health care sector is working together to fight the pandemic. We encourage communities to adhere to the lockdown and distancing efforts and to observe all measures put in place within the hospital to ensure the safety of our patients.”
