New weblink to streamline process for visitors and patients

We're continuing to screen all visitors to Austin Health to help keep staff and patients safe from COVID-19.

We've launched a new initiative to streamline the screening process to make it quicker and easier for visitors and patients to enter our sites.

Instead of answering screening questions at the entry, visitors and patients can simply answer the questions via our online Visitor Registration form before they arrive -

If it's safe for patients and visitors to enter, then a QR code will be generated which they can then present to the nurses at the screening points set up.

Staff will also be on hand to assist patients and visitors to fill out the online form if required.

This screening process is a vital step in keeping everybody safe so we're asking visitors to allow plenty of time if they're coming to visit a loved one.

Information about the new weblink has gone out on the Austin Health and ONJ Centre social media channels along with a reminder that our staff are working hard to care for our patients and need their support and care too.
