Statement re precautionary measures for hospital maternity unit

Sydney Adventist Hospital has restricted visitor access to its maternity unit allowing only the partners of mothers to visit.

The maternity unit is not in lock-down.

Restricting visitor access to only the partners of mothers is a proactive precautionary measure to protect mothers and babies.

Sydney Adventist Hospital has no cases of Coronavirus.

The Hospital is monitoring the worldwide Coronavirus situation in conjunction with advice from NSW Health, the Australian Government and the Commonwealth Department of Health.

This action is a complement to the screening process for all admissions that the Hospital has had in place for several weeks.

It is an appropriate clinical acknowledgement of the vulnerability of newborns. It is a measured response in recognition of the reported increase in the incidence of Coronavirus cases in Australia.

We are being diligent in constantly assessing what is happening in the community and looking at operational measures to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and visitors.

This measure has been taken following consultation with our obstetricians, paediatricians and other clinical experts.

We appreciate the support of our patients who have been understanding of the initiation of these steps to maximise the safety of newborns and families.
