General ban on visits
Since 26 March 2021 a general ban on relatives visiting the MHH will apply again due to the rising incidence figures and the current resolutions of the federal and state governments. The regulation is initially valid for four weeks. The delivery room and the paediatric clinic are exempt from this regulation. The existing rules continue to apply there, for further information see below. There is also an exception for relatives of patients receiving palliative care. The ban on visitors serves to protect the patients and the staff members of the clinics. Accompanying persons (if necessary) for outpatients are still allowed.
Arrangement of a pick-up and drop-off service
A pick-up and delivery service has been set up to ensure that inpatients' relatives can continue to provide them with the necessary items and laundry. Relatives can drop off the necessary items at the Service Point in the main hospital on daily between 2 pm and 7 pm.
If visitors have any questions, they can call the visitor hotline at (0511) 532-5100, Monday to Thursday from 7.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 7.30 a.m. to 2.30 p.m.
Regulation for delivery room, paediatric clinic and palliative care unit
At the MHH Children's Hospital the rule is: One fixed visitor per patient for the entire stay. Exceptions to this visitor rule are possible for the palliative medical situation as well as for accompanying dying patients.
