Visiting inpatients at Mountbatten

With the national relaxation of restrictions on 17 May, there is a change of arrangements for visiting our Inpatient Unit, as follows:

• Maximum of 6 nominated visitors per patient with only 2 visiting at a time but all 6 may visit during the course of a day.
• Visitors to continue to wear masks at all times but not aprons and gloves, unless patient is in isolation.
• Staff to continue to wear masks at all times but to wear aprons and gloves only during patient contact (e.g. providing personal care/assistance).
• If a patient is COVID positive to return to full isolation and PPE measures – including the use of visors at all times.
• To maintain social distancing wherever possible.

These revised arrangements are being communicated to visitors and patients on our Inpatient Unit and the information will be on our websites.
