Leaving the ward

Please inform the ward staff before leaving the ward at any time.

For your safety, we request that you do not leave the hospital premises without the permission of your doctor.

If staying on Wards 3, 4 or 5 (maternity) please consider the following:

  • Your baby should remain on the ward until discharged home, unless receiving medical treatment in another part of the hospital. 
  • Do not give your baby to anyone who does not have the proper staff identification. You, or a designated family member, are always welcome to accompany your baby to other treatment areas within the hospital. 
  • If you leave your room/ward you will need to consider who will look after your baby, i.e. a family member or close friend. Inform a midwife on the ward the name of the person who is looking after your baby.
