Hospitals Visiting Policy

Effective from 15 September 2023

We want to enable visiting as we believe it helps people recover and recognise that friends and family members are a vital support to patients.

We are re-introducing mask wearing and clinicians will be wearing masks in patient-facing settings.

Utmost care and consideration must be given to the safety of other patients, visitors and staff by maintaining infection prevention and control procedures at all times.

Religious and spiritual support is available for patients, either face-to-face or by telephone.

ALL VISITORS must report to the nurse’s station prior to visiting their relatives/friends.

Visiting times for Noble's and Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital and Manannan Court are outlined in the chart below.

Inpatient and Day Case areas

To minimise congestion in all areas, a maximum of 2 visitors per patient will be allowed at any one time on the Ward although additional visitors may be accommodated at the discretion of the Nurse in Charge in exceptional circumstances.

Outpatient areas including clinics and radiology

One visitor/escort per patient is permitted, one parent/escort per child will be permitted for the duration of the child’s stay in the Outpatient area.  A clinical decision must be made for any patient who requires additional assistance.

Ambulance Transfer

Escorts for patients arriving by Ambulance will be limited to one essential person.  Additional family members or friends wishing to travel to the hospital in their own transport should note that they will not be permitted to enter the Emergency Department as detailed below.

Emergency Department

One visitor/escort per patient is permitted. However, based on the clinical team’s judgment, other visitors/escorts may be permitted in exceptional circumstances.

Infection Prevention & Control Precautions

Do not visit someone in hospital if you have any of the following infections:

  • respiratory virus symptoms, including a common cold
  • diarrhoea and/or vomiting
  • other infectious diseases

You will not be permitted to enter either hospital unless agreed by the clinical team. Any visitor who attends the hospitals will be asked to leave if they have any of the infections described above.  An exception will apply for anyone needing emergency treatment. 

Hand Hygiene

All visitors are required to sanitise their hands on entry and exit to the hospitals, and again when entering and leaving wards and departments

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

You are not required to wear a mask when entering the hospitals; there are masks available for those who choose to wear one. Periodically, individual ward teams and visitors will be asked to wear masks on the advice of the infection prevention and control team.

Occasionally there may be extra infection prevention & control precautions required on individual wards or for individual patients. The staff from the ward will inform you if you need to wear PPE. Visitors should not remove their PPE whilst in the room AT ANY TIME. Staff will support you with the correct way to put on and take off your PPE.

Visitors are requested to wear the PPE that is recommended to minimise the risk of infection to our vulnerable patients, our staff and to protect you.
