COVID-19 Information for Patients

The safety, health and wellbeing of our patients, staff and medical specialists are of utmost importance to us.

The safety, health and wellbeing of our patients, staff and medical specialists are of utmost importance to us.

Under the Covid-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system) everyone coming to Mercy Hospital is required to;

· scan in with the Government Tracer app (or paper equivalent),

· wear a mask/face covering and

· practice good hand hygiene

All workers and visitors entering our hospitals are required to be vaccinated for Covid-19 and show their Vaccination Pass, patients do not have to do this.

Patients will however be asked their Covid-19 vaccination status to help us support their care.

Under Red and Orange settings, patients are restricted to one designated visitor or carer, however we would prefer that your visitors come in after your surgery unless the patient is a child or requires additional support prior to surgery.


Prior to coming in to hospital

A pre-admission Covid-19 test is not currently required. However, when/if Covid-19 comes into our community, testing will be required.
