NSW Patients

Due to the evolving situation, these protocols outlined below are subject to change. We encourage you to contact either your treating doctor or relevant hospital to confirm specific requirements.

Prior to admission:

  • All patients will undergo a COVID-19 risk assessment with our staff
  • All patients will need to advise their vaccination status.

When a PCR test is required:

  • Any patient who is symptomatic must complete a PCR test and contact their doctor or hospital with the result prior to admission.

When a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) is required:

  • All unvaccinated patients must complete a negative RAT test less than 72 hours before admission.
  • PCR or RAT test is also required if patient has only had 2 doses and 2nd dose has been administered more than 6 months ago.
  • Patients undergoing high-risk aerosol procedures may need to complete a RAT test. This will be discussed with your doctor or by the hospital during your pre-admission consult, depending on the outcome of your COVID 19 preadmission risk assessment.

All patients are required wear level one surgical masks. Please do not wear a cloth mask.

Patient Visitors

Visitors must be vaccinated and limited to one person accompanying a patient. Patient escort is not permitted in stage 2 recovery due to the social distancing protocol. Staff will advise the patient’s escort regarding the pickup time.
