Visitors are very important to the well-being of patients admitted to hospital. For many patients, having a visitor helps them recover at a faster rate. Also, patients feel more reassured, especially during stressful times. After all, a hospital stay can be quite disorienting. People who suffer from serious illnesses or injuries can surely benefit from the company of their loved ones and friends.
Besides providing mental relief and support, visiting loved ones can also assist patients with basic tasks or physical exercise. While healthcare professionals can provide the necessary assistance, some patients insist on having their loved ones help them with their personal needs.
Visiting restrictions have been lifted
With hospital visiting restrictions lifted here in New Zealand, visitors can now freely see their loved ones. There is no longer a need to practice physical distancing but it is still highly advisable to follow necessary health precautions.
Check with the hospital you are visiting first and make arrangements with the clinic or ward that you wish to visit. Also be sure to know how many people are allowed for each visitation. While hospital visits are encouraged, it’s essential to follow the rules to ensure the safety of everyone including other patients and the healthcare workers.
