We welcome visitors, knowing that they are there to provide support and care to our patients.
We do however recommend that patients limit the number of visitors they receive, to ensure they receive adequate rest.
We encourage our patients to have a rest period every day, and visitors are not permitted to visit the wards during this time, with the exception of partners or nominated support people.
At Mater we recognise the importance of visiting your loved ones at times that are convenient to you. We encourage family and friends to visit patients on all wards (excluding ICU) between 8 am to 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm to 8 pm, seven days a week.
For our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients, visiting is restricted to people the patient considers to be immediate family. Children under the age of 16 are encouraged not to visit the ward, however if appropriate, may be able to after discussion with clinical staff.
Visiting hours for ICU are between 11 am to 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm to 6 pm, seven days a week.
Please note, to ensure patients have adequate rest and recovery periods, we promote a rest period between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm.
