My recovery from a hip replacement operation was immensely improved by my stay with you.

Alwyn Rehabilitation Hospital Response to COVID 19 – Help us keep you safe

The health and well-being of our clients and staff is our priority. Alwyn Rehabilitation Hospital is following the guidelines of the NSW Ministry of Health during the pandemic period.

Alwyn Rehabilitation Hospital have strict infection control and prevention policies in place to protect patients, health care workers and visitors to minimise the risk of any infection, including COVID-19.

The symptoms of COVID-19 are documented on the Australian Government’s Department of Health website. If you are unwell and require urgent medical attention you should contact your GP or call 000 for an ambulance (this will work even without phone credit).

Information for patients

If you are unwell with any cold or flu like symptoms, and are scheduled for an admission, please contact the hospital or your doctor before attending the hospital.

Information for visitors

Due to the ongoing Covid Pandemic, Alwyn has changed visiting hours to reduce the risk to patients and staff. Visiting hours are now 11am to 7pm.

At Alwyn Rehabilitation Hospital we have implemented a one nominated visitor per patient for the duration of their stay during the pandemic period. Management understand that our patient’s requirements are individual, and this policy can be reviewed by the CEO/Clinical Care Manager on a needs by needs basis.

This is to protect our patients, staff and doctors.

If you enter the hospital, you must practise the following precautions:

Effective from 28/07 all inpatients will be required to wear a face mask outside of their room. One mask will be given to the patient during the morning medication round.

All Visitors and Day Rehabilitation Patients will be required to wear face masks.

Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol hand rub.

Avoid contact with others (including touching, kissing, hugging, and other intimate contact)

Cough and sneeze into your elbow.

When you wear a surgical face mask, after putting it on to cover your nose and mouth, do not touch the front of the mask and remove it using the ear loops or head straps.

Dispose of the used mask into a waste bin and perform hand hygiene with soap and water or alcohol hand rub.

Social distancing

It is important to practise social distancing to stop or slow the spread of infectious diseases, such as COVID-19. The more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.

You should aim to remain 1.5 metres apart at all times. If you are required to move closer than 1.5 metres, ensure that the time does not exceed 15 minutes

Do not shake hands

Do not share food
