*Information is accurate as of 16 April 2018
- All visitors to the ward are required to register before they enter.
- Keep visits short as our patients need sufficient rest to recover.
- Be considerate and keep the noise levels down. Noise is a source of stress that can interrupt patients’ sleep and recovery.
- The Restricted (ICUs) and Isolation Ward together with Restricted Outpatient Clinic are considered restricted area due to the serious conditions of patients recovering there. As these groups of patients require ample rest, only 2 visitors are allowed at the bedside at any one time during visiting hours. Children under 12 years old are not encouraged to visit these restricted units.
- Respect neighbouring patient’s need for privacy in a shared room or open ward. Switch your mobile phone to “SILENT” mode, and speak softly on the phone to avoid disturbing patients.
- Refrain from eating by the patients’ bedside to reduce infection, and to ensure a clean and comfortable environment.
- Visitors must practice hand hygiene to minimise infection when they are in the ward. Wash your hands with soap and water, or sanitise them with alcohol rub before and after visiting the patient.
- Smoking or drinking alcohol is not allowed on hospital premises.
- To prevent a breach of or compromise of privacy, confidentiality, security and safety of patients, staff, students, associates, visitors and/or the institution, unauthorised photography and/or audio/video recording using any device is prohibited within KKH premises.
- The use of mobile phones is strictly not allowed in areas from any medical equipment located in Restricted areas such as Intensive Care Unit, as these mobile devices may interfere with the medical equipment in the ward.
- Anyone with symptoms of fever, cough, cold or any ailment must not visit patient.
- No playing or running in the wards. Parental supervision is required at all times.
