Current visitor policy
All Hawke’s Bay DHB facilities, including Wairoa Hospital, Napier Health and Central Hawke’s Bay Health Centre, currently have a restricted visitor policy.
Read about our Alert Level 2 visitor policy here.
Hawke’s Bay DHB has freed up some restrictions for visitors in Alert Level 2, but others will remain in place to ensure the safety of patients and staff:
- Visiting hours are 1-8pm.
- No children are allowed on the wards.
Visitor policy by area:
- Wards tower block, Intensive Care Unit and Ngā Rau Rākau mental health services: one visitor at a time. More than one person will be able to visit each day, but each person can only visit once a day.
- Emergency Department (ED): no visitors or support people allowed.
Discretion will be applied for children or for people with special care needs by the Clinical Nurse Manager or shift coordinator.
- Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU): only parents can visit.
- Maternity delivery-suite: one support person is allowed.
- Maternity post-natal: one support person plus one visitor at a time, and only one visit a day.
- Outpatients: outpatient appointment patients including radiology and laboratory should come alone, unless they have been asked to bring a support person. Exceptions to this are a parent/guardian accompanying a child or people who have a disability and/or need assistance.
- Discretion may be applied on a case-by-case basis.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
