New visiting regulations
- Since 28 August 2021, the 3G regulation (In German: geimpft, getestet or genesen means vaccinated, recovered or tested) will also apply at the MHH in accordance with the Lower Saxony Corona Ordinance. A maximum of 2 visitors per patient per day for one hour in the time from 1 pm to 7 pm is possible, the last visit hour ends at 7 pm. The two visitors can also come at the same time for one hour.
- Patients are allowed to be visited from the 1st day of their stay. Visiting is possible in all intensive care units.
- A ban on visiting COVID-19 patients remains in place. Individual exceptions are to be discussed with the responsible staff.
- Visit after online registration in advance or at the service points
- Fully vaccinated persons do not need a test certificate (vaccination card must be shown).
- Those who have not been fully vaccinated require an up-to-date test (antigen or PCR test) with an official certification from an accredited testing centre. Kids can also visit, but they must be tested from the age of seven.
- Recovered COVID-19 patients require an up-to-date test (antigen or PCR test) with an official certification from an accredited testing centre.
- The test certificate must be from the same day like the visit. A listing of Corona test centers in the city and region of hanover can be found on the pages of the city of Hannover. Please click here (in German).
The MHH does not offer testing facilities for visitors!
- Please note that fully vaccinated visitors (from day 15 after the second vacination) can accompany emergency patients to the emergency room. Usually only one person is allowed to accompany the patient. We decide on a case by case basis if not fully vaccinated persons can accompany the patient.
Hygiene rules must be observed!
The special regulations for the paediatric clinic, maternity clinic and palliative medicine remain in force.
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.
