The well-being of our patients and staff is if utmost importance to us. Therefore, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic we have put measures in place to curb the spread of the virus at our facility.

The following protocols have been put in place to prevent COVID-19 infections and to manage suspected positive cases:

  • All staff, including homebased carers, have been trained and upskilled according to the guidelines provided by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NCID) and World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure the best hygiene practices at all times.
  • Every person entering our facility undergoes a general COVID-19 screening which includes a compulsory temperature check, health check and hand sanitising. No person is allowed to enter our facility without a mask. Homebased carers are required to sanitise frequently during the day and wear a mask at all times.
  • As a precautionary measure, visitations to patients in our sub-acute facility are limited to [state the hours] and no more than two visitors per patient is allowed at a time.

We implore our community to:

  • Adhere to our screening requests
  • Wear a mask when entering our facility
  • Sanitise your hands with the sanitiser provided at the entrance.
  • Keep to our visiting hours.
  • Refrain from visiting our facility if you are feeling unwell.
