At Royal Rehab, we recognise that visitors are an important part of the recovery process. However, our hospital is first and foremost a place of treatment and recovery, so we ask that visitors always keep this in mind. Adhering to the following guidelines and our visiting hours helps to ensure the needs of our patients are respected and our hospital continues to operate as smoothly as possible.

Guidelines for Visitors

Phone before visit

Phone ahead and speak with the patient or with the nurses’ station before you visit. This ensures the patient is ready to receive visitors and allows you to check when would be the most convenient time to come. Patients’ circumstances are all different and some may not be ready for visitors.

2 Visit outside of therapy times

We request that visits take place outside therapy times unless visitors are being trained to assist the patient with their therapy or ongoing needs. All our patients have individual rehabilitation programs with structured timetables so they will be away from their rooms during certain periods of each day.

3 Wash your hands

We encourage visitors to wash their hands before and after a visit to reduce the transfer of infections. Hand sanitation creams are provided throughout the facility. Hand hygiene is an important part of our commitment to meeting hospital safety standards.

4 Respect the equipment

As a specialist rehabilitation facility, we have a range of equipment such as wheelchairs and gym gear on-site that is specifically for the use of our clients. Please note that this equipment is not to be used by visitors.

5 Smoke free

Royal Rehab is a smoke free environment with the exception of the designated smoking area which is located on Recreation Circle near the Sports Courts. No smoking is permitted on any other areas of the grounds.

6 If unwell

Do not visit the facility if you are unwell. This helps to prevent the spread of infections into the hospital environment.

7 Photographs

We request that no photos are taken of any other patients or of Royal Rehab staff members during a visit to our facility. This is to protect the privacy of individuals in our care and employment.
