Visiting the Royal Children’s
As part of our COVID safety measures, there are limits on
the number and type of visitors to different parts of the hospital. Before you
visit, you need to check
the latest visitor guidelines
We have a check in process in place for all visitors to the
hospital. This includes visitors seeing patients on a ward or families coming
in for an appointment. Please allow up to 30 minutes for check in.
Quiet times and after hours
Patients in hospital need lots of
rest to help them recover.
Most wards have ‘Quiet Time’ between
midday and 2pm. During these times only parents or primary carers can stay with
their child. At 8pm, any visitors will be asked to leave the ward and make
their way to the exits.
The main hospital entry doors are
locked at 8.30pm each night and unlocked at 8am each morning. Parents staying by their child’s bedside
overnight should speak with the nursing staff if they wish
to leave and return to the hospital.
Gifts and flowers
Visitors are welcome to bring gifts however please make sure that any balloons
Before bringing flowers, check
with your child’s nursing staff. Some wards cannot allow flowers in patients’
rooms for hygiene and infection control reasons.
The RCH also has strict
guidelines about bringing in outside food for patients
