OUR VISITOR HOURS HAVE CHANGED DURING COVID-19

Albury Wodonga Health has made changes to its visitor policy in line with Health Dept policy to address the spread of COVID-19. This policy aims to keep ALL patients, staff and members of the public safe. 

Patients have been asked to nominate ONE ONLY consistent visitor for their stay. If you are a designated visitor you will be screened here at the main entrance before being allowed to enter the hospital.

 

VIRTUAL VISITING PROGRAM

Enter Our Waiting Area 

AWH patients and their family and friends are warmly invited to participate in our Virtual Visiting Program, which is currently being piloted in the Acute Ward at Wodonga Hospital.

We know that visiting and travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic means many family and friends are not able to visit patients during their time in hospital. This prevents our patients from receiving much needed support from their loved ones during their illness. With this in mind, Albury Wodonga Health has developed a Virtual Visiting Program to help connect patients with their family and friends.

This Program involves using telehealth technology to help patients connect with their family and friends. Trained facilitators are available to help patients to use their own devices or access an iPad available for loan to connect with their loved ones, while adhering to strict infection control procedures to minimise the risk of infection and protect our patients, community and staff.

Please contact a staff member on the Acute Ward at Wodonga Hospital if you would like find out more about – or participate in – this Program!

You will ONLY be able to visit for ONE hour daily during visitor hours:

11am - 1pm OR 5pm -7pm

Thank you for your co-operation. Should you have any questions, please ask a staff member
