Visitors Information

It is Peamount Healthcare’s policy to ensure that all service users and relatives visiting requirements are facilitated on an individual basis.
The following are the recommended visiting hours:

Residential Settings

11.00 – 21.00

Rehabilitation Service

14.00 – 16.30 and 18.00 – 21.00

Visitors may be requested to leave the ward/unit due to health and safety issues, privacy and dignity issues, during protected mealtimes and therapeutic interventions.
Visitors may be asked to leave the bedside by staff if they need to attend to service user’s needs.
Children under the age of 16 are not permitted to visit on their own. They must be always under the supervision of another adult. Children cannot be left in the care of the service users.
A patient has the right to decline visitors. The Ward Manager can request that visitors leave if the number present or the length of the visit is deemed excessive. It is best to limit visitors to two at a time.
For Health and Safety reasons all visitors are requested to sign the visitor’s book. This is required so that the staff have a clear picture of who is on the ward/unit at any given time.
Visitors can avail of the beverage self service facility on the units. The Paddock’s Café is open for visitors between 9am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday.
Visitors should ensure to use hand hygiene facilities as available when entering and exiting wards/units.
Visitors should ensure ward staff are informed of all food being brought into the service user.
Additional restrictions apply from time to time, e.g., during outbreaks of infectious diseases. Visiting may be severely curtailed, next of kin only at these times.
Relatives and friends are requested not to visit if they have sore throats, flu, vomiting and/or diarrhoea or other infections until they have been well for 48 hours, because of the risk of introducing infection to the patients.
Visiting hours may also be restricted for medical or emergency situations.

Thank you for your co-operation.
Director of Nursing.
