Mater is working alongside other hospitals in Queensland to provide a coordinated response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As this situation evolves some of the services and inpatient care at the Mater South Brisbane campus are temporarily relocating. If you are a patient or visiting a patient and are not sure where to go, please call 07 3163 8111 and we will do our best to help you. Please be aware that to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, patients and the community all Mater hospitals have placed restrictions on visitors to minimise the exposure risk to COVID-19.
We do ask, if you have any flu-like symptoms which include a fever or cough, please avoid visiting family or friends in hospital.
In addition to these measures, Mater staff will intervene where they feel that visitor numbers or access is increasing risk to patients and/or staff. As always, Mater staff will aim to be sensitive to cultural and emotional needs during this time but must prioritise safety.
We ask that the community is mindful of the changes outlined above in the context of patient and staff safety. Mater will aim to resume normal visiting arrangements as soon as possible.
Visitors are encouraged to telephone the patient to schedule a time for a visit. Patients participate in a rest period every day, and visitors are not permitted to visit the wards during this time. All telephone calls are diverted to staff during this time.
