Visitor information

Location

The Bays Hospital is located on Vale Street in Mornington.
Melways Ref: 104 E12

Visiting

Visitors are welcome. 

We encourage patient rest time from 1.00pm–2.30pm and limit visitors during this time.

Please be mindful that late evening and long visits may be tiring for patients. 

If you are planning to visit a relative who is being cared for in our high dependency unit, we advise you check with us first. Please note: we limit two visitors at a time in this area.

We are committed to preventing the spread of infection at The Bays. You can help us by:

  • using the alcohol based hand rubs located throughout the hospital
  • not visiting patients if you feel unwell with fever, cough, cold/flu, nausea/vomiting, diahorrea, or have been in contact with someone who has an infectious disease.

What not to bring

Due to infection control risk, please do not bring the following items to the hospital:

  • Potted plants
  • Latex (rubber) balloons

Cut flowers and foil (mylar) balloons are welcome.
