Most wards at Hutt Hospital welcome whānau and friends to visit at any time between 2 pm-8 pm, seven days a week. If you plan to visit outside of these hours, please discuss this with the patient's ward Charge or Duty Nurse Manager where possible,
If you're feeling unwell, then please help protect patients and kaimahi by postponing your visit until you are feeling better.
Please note, there may be some areas of the hospital that may be unable to accept visitors at times to protect everyone from possible infection. These areas may change from time to time. Please call our Patient Enquiries team on 04 566 6999 for the latest information on any temporary restrictions.
Kaitiakitanga - nominating a Kaitiaki/support person for your stay in the hospital
There are times when it is helpful to a person's recovery and well-being to have a support person stay with them when they are staying on a ward - we call these people Kaitiaki under our Kaitiakitanga Kaupapa/Guideline.
This is where a patient can ask for a whānau, friend, or family member to stay outside of visiting times to provide support during their stay in hospital. This will involve a discussion between the patient, the person nominated to be a Kaitiaki about what this involves, and the Duty or Charge Nurse Manager. We do aim to support these requests where we can, however this may not always be available in high-risk areas, or if there is a clinical reason, or it would affect other patients in the area.
To find out if this option may available for you, please speak with the patient's Duty or Charge Nurse Manager.
