The SIVUH is implementing guidelines as recommended by the Health Service Executive (HSE)

Due to the ongoing risk of COVID-19 the hospital visiting hours are restricted to protect the health and safety of Patients, Visitors and Staff.  Each Visit must first be agreed with ward staff and booked in advance to limit the number of Visitors to the Hospital and in the event of a COVID-19 positive case, it will allow contact tracing to be carried out more quickly.

All visits have to be booked in advance. The total number of Visitors to the Hospital at one time is currently restricted. Children are not allowed to visit at this time. The new visiting practice will remain in place as a response to COVID-19 pandemic and will be reviewed as required. As always exceptions may be made in specific circumstances.
