Rules for visiting the sick in the Provincial Hospital

Taking into account the current epidemiological situation in the country and the progressive vaccination process against COVID-19, we decided to allow patients to visit their relatives during hospitalization from 18/06/2021. Internet and telephone communication will remain the basic method of contact, however, it will be possible to obtain consent for visits for one closest person. Guided by the concern for the safety of patients and their families, we ask that the designated person be either fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or after illness (recovery up to 6 months from a positive SARS-CoV-2 test). The organizational rules of the visits are presented below:
  1. Time
  2. from 15.00 to 18.00 every day
  3. duration – 15 minutes
  4. Visit possible by appointment
  5. Location – arranged by ward staff
  6. Patient room if the patient is lying or alone
  7. Designated room
  8. Number of people
  9. One designated person (optimally vaccinated or recovered)
