Currently there is an increased amount of sickness among tamariki in our community, with a greater than usual amount of respiratory (breathing-related) viruses.
To help prevent the spread of infection within our hospital, we are restricting the number of tamariki and whānau visiting Women's Health.
It's also really important that visitors keep well while in the hospital.
Please do not visit if you are sick.
You may choose to wear a face covering while in shared spaces in the ward. Ask your nurse or midwife for a mask if you don't have one.
Please sanitise your hands when entering or leaving rooms.
If you feel unwell while you are staying in hospital, let your nurse or midwife know.
Exceptions to the visitor restrictions policy on compassionate grounds will be at the discretion of the clinical team. Please talk to the nurse or midwife in charge.
If you have any questions, talk to your healthcare team.
At National Women's Health, we want you and your whanau to feel safe.
Stay safe. Be kind. Remember to wash your hands, use the NZ COVID tracer app and get tested if you have symptoms.
Following the Ministry of Health announcement, we encourage anyone who is pregnant to get a COVID-19 vaccine as part of Group 3 at any stage of your pregnancy.COVID-19 Vaccine in pregnancy
