We at Gleneagles Medini (GMH) believe that companionship in visiting family, relatives and friends is part and parcel of the healing process. The regular visiting hours run from 9am to 10pm. The other elements in recuperation and recovery are treatments and rest. It is a delicate balance. That is why visiting hours, especially for patients in high dependency units like Intensive Care and Coronary Care, are strictly regulated so that treatment and optimum healing goes on with minimal disruption.
Patients at Gleneagles Medini (GMH) may receive visitors daily from 9am to 10pm.Permission to visit outside normal hours may be granted at the discretion of the Nurse Manager of each ward/unit. We at GMH understand that companionship and assistance are essential to one’s healing process and well-being. We encourage your family and friends to visit you throughout your stay at the Hospital. However, one should remember that the patient needs as much rest and sleep to recuperate and to receive the treatment and care they need with minimal interruption. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) / Coronary Care Unit (CCU) / High Dependency Units (HDU) Visiting Hours: 12.00pm to 2.00pm 5.00pm to 8.00pm Please note that permission to visit outside normal hours may be granted at the discretion of the Nurse Manager.
In the interest of patient’s health, children below 12 years of age are not allowed into the ICU for visiting. Preventing infections is also one of our most important goals at Gleneagles Medini. While not all infections are preventable, many can be prevented if we observe the following:
- Practice hand hygiene. Washing your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer is one of the easiest way to perform hand hygiene. Our hospital is equipped with hand sanitizer dispensers in hallways and outside patient’s rooms.
- Prevent the spread of infection. If you, your family or friends have infections such as cough, cold, fever or rash, please ask them not to visit until they feel better.
Do not send flowers to patients in ICU. It will not be allowed as the ICU is a sterile place and should be kept free from possible contaminants.
