For Patients

Ward Visitor Guide & Registration

In line with MOH’s latest COVID-19 safety measures for hospitals to protect patients, a vaccination-differentiated visitation approach for hospital wards has been implemented from 19 August 2021.

  • Fully vaccinated visitors will be allowed to enter hospital wards (except restricted wards). Partially vaccinated visitors will be allowed entry only from 19 August to 30 September 2021. Unvaccinated visitors will not be allowed entry, unless they can show valid negative antigen rapid test (ART) or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test results, obtained within the last 24 hours of the visit from MOH-approved COVID-19 test providers (check Visitors will need to pay for the tests

As part of our COVID-19 measures, ward visitors are required to

  • register on-site at the hospital
  • complete a health and travel declaration form
  • use TraceTogether App or token for SafeEntry check-in

Mask must be worn at all times

Ward visitors must bring their own masks and ensure the mask is worn at all times.

Do Not Enter If You Are ill

As a precautionary measure, you will not be allowed entry if you are having fever, breathlessness, body ache, headache, cough, chills, fatigue, sore throat or runny nose.

Practise Social Distancing

  • Maintain a safe distance of at least 2 metres from others at all times.
  • Refrain from communicating and interacting with other patients or visitors in the ward.
  • Caregivers or visitors are not allowed to eat or drink, sit on patients’ beds and use patients’ toilets in the wards.

Visiting Hours

  • 12pm - 2pm and
  • 5pm - 8pm

Love Your Children

For infection control and safety reasons, children aged 12 and below will not be allowed entry.

Ward Visitors

  • Up to 2 pre-registered visitors (including caregivers) may visit for the entire admission period.
  • Each patient may receive up to 2 visits per day, with a maximum of 1 pre-registered visitor or caregiver at the bedside at any one time during visiting hours (limited to 30 minutes per visit).
  • Visitation is not allowed at Restricted Wards.
  • Requests to stay beyond 30 minutes may be granted on a case-by-case basis for visitors of patients who are critically ill or require additional care support, or for caregiver training. These visitors need to undergo the COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) prior to entering the wards regardless of vaccination status.

Our patients need to rest and recover.

Thank you for your cooperation.
