RULES FOR VISITORS

Helping the patient from near and dear ones in the form of small services, for example, the delivery of additional clothes from home or a gift in the form of a book, has a positive effect on the patient’s psychological state, which in turn positively speeds up the recovery process.

Also, a visit to the hospital allows near and dear ones to be aware of the patient’s condition.

  • Visiting hours at the hospital are from 13.00 to 14.00 and from 18.00 to 19.00 daily.
  • The large number of visitors makes it difficult to provide cleaning and treatment services, as a result of which many germs from the outside get into hospital.
  • Children under the age of 12 and visitors with complaints such as fever, coughing, sneezing and expectoration, people with chronic infectious diseases and people with weakened immunity must not visit the patient.
  • Every visitor must wash his/her hands or use hand sanitizer before and after visiting.
  • Don’t sit on the patient’s bed.
  • Don’t speak loudly or make noise.
  • Reduce patient visit times to a minimum
  • Don’t bring food or drinks.
  • Don’t bring flowers.
  • The rules for accompanying and visiting in departments where special groups of patients stay are determined by the relevant department by the decision of the doctor.

RULES FOR VISITING IN THE INTENSIVE THERAPY UNIT

  • Only the closest relatives (mother, father, spouse, children) are allowed to the patient every day for no more than 10 minutes a day.
  • Duration of the visit may vary depending on the patient’s condition, as decided by the doctor and nurse. In the event of an emergency in the intensive therapy unit, the visit to the patient may be terminated or postponed.
  • The maximum number of received visitors is 2 (two) people. However, the number of visitors may be limited due to the complexity of control and the risk of environmental pollution. In such cases, please, do not insist.
  • Lack of awareness arises from the fact that relatives of patients try to obtain information in different ways. Besides, the condition of the patient in resuscitation unit can change at any time. For this reason, only one of the family members must be designated as the contact person, starting with their first-degree relatives.
  • Hand hygiene is the most important rule to follow to prevent infection while visiting a patient. Visitors must wash their hands or use disinfectant at the entrance. (For this purpose, there are hand sanitizers at the entrance to the resuscitation unit).

  • Do not kiss patients or sit in a hospital bed.
  • For the health of your patient and all other patients, do not touch any patient care products during the visit.
  • During this period, keep your mobile phone switched off and do not take photos, videos or sound recordings in accordance with the privacy law.
  • Relatives of patients do not need to wait in front of the intensive treatment unit, except during visiting hours. If necessary, you will be contacted at the specified phone number.
  • Never bring a child under 16 years of age to a patient.
  • People with coughs, running nose, high blood pressure, panic attacks, etc., as well as patients with chronic diseases are not suitable for visiting patients in the intensive therapy unit.
  • From the point of view of patient safety and confidentiality, information about him/her is not passed through by telephone.

  • Do not forget that all measures taken are aimed at the health and safety of your close and dear one.
