New measures will take effect on Friday, December 31, 2021.

Owen King EU Hospital (OKEUH)

Ward – AGW 1-3, Obstetrics & ICU

1 visitor per patient

  • Monday to Sunday | 6am – 7am | Maximum 15 mins per visit

Ward – Pediatrics

1 visitor per patient

  • Monday to Sunday | 6am – 7am | One parent will be allowed to stay with the patient, name should be registered with nurses. Only 1 visitor will be permitted during visiting hours. If the other parent is just visiting and not relieving the parent who is already on the unit, that visiting parent will need to come to the unit at the hospital allocated visiting hours, thus reducing traffic on the ward.

National Mental Wellness Centre (NMWC)

All wards

1 visitor per patient

  • Monday to Sunday |5 pm -6 pm | Maximum 15 mins per visit

MHMC recognises that persons may wish to drop off items for family members outside of visiting hours. Please note these items can be dropped off at the security station, properly marked with the patient’s name and ward.

 The management and staff of the MHMC continues to appeal to the public to comply with the new measures as we continue to put your health first.

  1. I my opinion there need to be more inclusion of the family in those protocols. There is an obvious shortage of nursing staff at the MHMC. Therefore, family members are required to augment the staffing needs. Why are they being disregarded? Please involve the family to improve the quality of patient care.
