Visiting times

We welcome you to visit your relative or friend while they are a patient at either Rockingham General or Murray District Hospitals.

General visiting hours: daily from 8:00am to 1:00pm and 3.00pm to 8.00pm
Rest periods: 1:00pm to 3:00pm

All wards have a rest period where the patients are encouraged to rest. Visitors may be asked to leave the ward during this time. Patients wishing to have visitors during this rest period may be asked to move to a lounge area so as to allow other patients quiet rest time.

Please be aware that nursing staff on individual wards may adjust the visiting hours to meet the medical requirements of the patients on that ward.

Some areas such as the Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department, Paediatric Unit and Maternity Ward have restricted visiting.

Please check with ward staff for further information or if you wish to visit outside these hours.

For the comfort of all patients, we recommend short visits and to limit the number of visitors as adequate rest is essential for all patients. Children should be supervised so as not to disturb other patients.

Flowers are able to be brought onto most wards however we only allow foil balloons (latex balloons are restricted due to allergy reactions).

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on our health service grounds.
