Important information for Mitcham Private Hospital patients
21 October 2021
Mitcham Private Hospital has implemented a comprehensive pandemic management plan to keep patients and health care workers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We were informed on 18 October that a small number of staff, two doctors and two inpatients were identified as close contacts of a confirmed COVID case.
These individuals have all undergone COVID testing and have all returned negative baseline results.
Deep cleaning has been completed and increased cleaning of frequently touched surfaces will continue.
Please be reassured that that we are working to a considered plan designed to put the welfare of our patients, staff and doctors as our top priority. All our actions and robust protocols to protect the safety and wellbeing of our health care workers and patients are aligned with state and federal government guidelines and directives. Visitors to the hospital also remain restricted at this time.
We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. We thank you for your support during this time.
