There are now screening measures in place for everyone entering our hospitals in Parkville and Sandringham.
See our visitors policy to see who is allowed to visit at this time.
In Parkville, you will be asked to complete an online registration form. You can access this form by:
- entering the URL bit.ly/qrwomens into your phone's web browser (you can do this when you arrive at the hospital, or complete at home the same day you’re due to attend)
- using your mobile phone camera to scan the QR code displayed on posters at entrances
- using an iPad at the screening desks (if you don’t have a phone to use).
The online registration form will ask if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, if you have come into contact with a confirmed case in the past 14 days, if you’ve ever been diagnosed with COVID-19 or if you’re currently waiting on a test result.
At the end of the online registration form, you will see a colour-coded message with the current date. You’ll need to show this message to one of our Screeners. Our Screeners will also check your temperature. If you pass screening, you’ll be provided with a coloured sticker to display on your clothing, and a single-use surgical mask to wear (watch our video showing how to wear a mask safely).
All entry to the Women’s in Parkville is currently via the Lower Ground floor. The main entry is now down the ramp closest to the corner of Flemington Road and Grattan Street (next to the closed main entrance). Lifts from the car park also take everyone to the Lower Ground floor for screening.
In Sandringham, you will be asked some screening questions and have your temperature taken. If you pass screening you will be given a sticker to display on your clothing. A single-use surgical mask will also be provided for you to wear.
