In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health & Human Services has developed a COVID 19 Surgical Booking Screening Checklist. This checklist MUST be completed both before and on the day of a patients admission into hospital. This is to ensure patients are screened appropriately and any potential risks are identified prior to their admission. Our pre-admission nurse will call you in the lead up to your admission to complete the initial Covid screening checklist. This will be performed again by your nurse upon admission.
PLEASE NOTE WILL NEED TO COMPLETE A RAPID ANTIGEN TEST (COVID Test) on the day of your scheduled procedure. Adults accompanying children into theatre will also be required to perform a Rapid Antigen Test.
If you return a positive result, your procedure is unable to go ahead at this time. Please contact us on 1800 446 276 to reschedule your appointment.
If you return a negative result please take a photo of your test result and show it to our staff at reception.
If you are unable to obtain a RAT you are able to purchase one from us for $15.
