Calvary Public Hospital Bruce

PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY IN THE ACT

A Public Health Emergency has been declared in the ACT for the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, read more via this link.

From 13 July until further notice every person entering any public health facility in the ACT will be required to register their attendance and complete a Symptoms Check and Travel Check.

You can do this by:

  • Scanning the QR code on the health screening posters as you enter the health facility
  • Filling in your details online by either visiting screening.covid19.act.gov.au or by scanning the below QR code with your mobile phone camera
  • Fill in a form at the screening desk.
    This can be completed on arrival at Calvary, or be completed in advance and retained for you to show the staff at our Entry Registration Desks.

The pandemic has prompted us to ask you to do a few things differently to help us care for you better.

These include:

  • strict adherence to visiting times in our ward areas which are 11.00am to 1.00pm and 3.00pm to 8.00pm
  • maximum of one visitor per patient per day
  • only one visitor allowed to patients in the Acute, See and Treat or Short Stay Units within the Emergency Department
  • a visitor nominated by the patient is preferred; family, friends and carers should coordinate visiting arrangements
  • children (17 years of age and under) may have one carer or parent present at all times, with another welcome for one hour per day
  • visitors must practice hand hygiene and social distancing
  • visitors will be required to register their name and contact details
  • visitors must leave Calvary if asked to do so
  • children and young people (up to 17 years of age) should avoid visiting Calvary
  • the main entry doors to Calvary will close at 8pm daily; entry between 8.00pm and 6.00am must be via the Emergency Department
