What a horrible week… Over 80 aged care facilities now affected across the state and growing regional transmission rates. Not what any of us wanted to see…. To be clear, all lives matter, but we are really worried about the welfare and transmission to our beloved aged care residents this week.Once again, to protect our staff, patients and the wider community, we are advising that we will be continuing our current process of restricting non-essential visitors to Cohuna District Hospital and our aged care facility for another two weeks.You will also note that in any hospital you enter at this time, you will see health care workers wearing masks. This is a direction across the board to help protect staff, reduce transmission, and as part of this direction, we will be asking you to wear one of our masks whilst you are within the building accessing care or supporting someone that is. This is something that is going to part of all our lives in Victoria now, with the requirement to wear face masks or coverings coming into effect across the state from Monday the 3rd of August 2020.Please note: Midwifery restrictions remain unchanged, with only the partner/support person able to be present in the ward throughout the full hospital admission, while patients in the Urgent Care Centre can have one support person.Visitors may only be allowed on compassionate grounds which will be at the discretion of the nurse manager of the relevant unit. You can however visit the site and interact through the windows, its not the same but it brightens our residents and patients day to at least see and speak with their loved ones.As the health of our staff, patients, visitors and community remains our biggest priority we have left this measure in place so we can continue to provide the highest level of care in this uncertain phase. You can help us in the region by doing your part too: Wash your hands, wear your mask in public and get tested if you have any symptoms.Please visit our website for further details or call us on 54 565 300. ...

Visiting Hours at Cohuna District Hospital & Aged Care 31/07/2020

To protect our staff, patients and the wider community, we will be continuing our current temporary restriction that was advised on the 18/7/2020 for an additional two weeks, still restricting non-essential visitors to Cohuna District Hospital and our aged care facility until 7am Saturday 15th of August 2020.

Whilst we are aware there is no current activity known in our region at this time, the escalating nature of the current situation in Melbourne, and with feedback from our community and staff, we feel the most prudent course of action for the next week is a conservative one.
Midwifery restrictions remain unchanged, with only the partner/support person able to be present in the ward, while patients in the Urgent Care Centre can have one support person.
Visitors may only be allowed on compassionate grounds which will be at the discretion of the nurse manager of the relevant unit.  Please call the relevant ward if you wish to arrange a visit.
All people attending outpatient appointments and visitors to Cohuna District Hospital will be required to wear a face mask.  Masks will be provided on entry and should be worn throughout your visit until you exit the building. Single use masks should be discarded after leaving the hospital.
People attending appointments and visitors will continue to be temperature tested and screened when they present at Cohuna District Hospital buildings.

As the health of our staff, patients, visitors and community remains our biggest priority we have put this measure in to place so we can continue to provide the highest level of care in this uncertain phase, and will communicate out again regarding the current situation and thinking next week based on further analysis of the evolving pandemic situation the state of Victoria is currently facing.
