    In order to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our patients and staff safe, Buderim Private Hospital is currently monitoring visitors.

    You should not visit the hospital if you:

    • have travelled overseas (not including Government recognised Safe Travel Zones) or from a declared hot spot,
    • had close contact with a person who has COVID-19 in the previous 14 days.
    • are unwell or sick with symptoms such as a fever (37.5 degrees or more), a cough, runny nose, sore throat, breathing difficulties and/or loss of taste and/or loss of smell
    • are waiting on COVID-19 test results.

    At the entrance to the hospital, patients and visitors will have their temperature screened upon admission, using a thermal imaging camera; and complete the QR Code COVID-19 screening tool.

    Visit Queensland Health for the latest Hospital Visitor Direction. Thank you for your understanding. Our dedicated teams are doing their best to keep everyone safe and well.
