Visiting Hours

Burnside Hospital has adopted liberalised visiting hrs during the day to ensure that our patient's needs in relation to their personal & care requirements are met.

Patients are encouraged to discuss their preferred visiting arrangements with family & friends (who should come & when) & confirm these with their nurse on admission. Visitors can make a significant contribution on a patient's recovery.

Visitors are requested to approach the Ward Nurses Station prior to visiting a patient for the first time & to observe signage on room doors.

For security reasons the hospital is secured between the hours of 10 pm &, 6 am each day so visiting during these times must be negotiated with hospital staff & will be granted on a need only basis. KNOW MORE.
