Hospitals lift restrictions on visiting hours

FRIENDS and family will be able to spend much longer with patients at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals from 18 December 2015. Wards will open for visiting at midday and stay open until 8.30pm, 7 days a week. The decision by Simon Featherstone, Director of Nursing and Quality, follows a successful trial at Southport hospital earlier this year.

"The support and company of friends and family is an important part of any patient's recovery but traditional visiting times don't always fit round people's working lives and personal commitments. We also know some visitors want to play a more active role in the care of the patient they're visiting, such as helping at mealtimes and providing a familiar voice in unfamiliar surroundings, so I hope this more flexible approach will help them. To make this work, we also need visitors to help us too. We ask that there should be only 2 visitors per bed and, from time to time, we may ask visitors to leave the bedside during personal care for patients or consultant ward rounds." said Simon.
