Family births and care at our hospital
we make every effort to ensure that you and your child are not only comfortable, but also as safe as possible. The introduction of additional procedures has helped us maintain continuity, so that we are a safe place for the birth of further children every day.
Principles of safety
Everyone entering our hospital grounds undergoes what is known as triage, namely an initial epidemiological assessment. We check the partner’s health on entry and regularly throughout his stay, and provide him with all the necessary personal protective equipment (masks, gloves, etc.). Footwear must be changed before entering the ward – his own footwear. We recommend that the patient’s partner undergoes home quarantine for 14 days before the pregnant woman’s due date or the date of admission to hospital.
How family births take place
Knowing how important it is to experience the birth of a child together, we uphold the opportunity to conduct family births. In the case of a natural delivery, we allow partners to be present in the delivery room during childbirth. In the case of a Caesarean section, the accompanying person is able to enter the delivery room, but is required to strictly comply with the instructions of the staff.
Stay of a companion in hospital
The companion may be present at the hospital for up to four hours after the delivery if the patient is staying in a single room, or up to the day of discharge of the patient with the child in the case of staying in a family room. After leaving the ward, the companion will not be allowed to return to it, but may visit the patient. Visiting hours are between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Different visiting hours may be agreed with the head of the ward or the doctor authorized by him in exceptional situations.
Visiting hours are between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Different visiting hours may be agreed with the head of the ward or the doctor authorized by him in exceptional situations. Only one visitor is allowed.
The visitor is required to undergo a triage encompassing an epidemiological interview and measurement of temperature at the request of the staff. Visits can only take place in the patient’s room or in a place specified by the staff. Patients and visitors should keep their stay in generally accessible areas to a minimum.
Visitors are obliged to:
- always wear a mask that tightly covers the nose and mouth;
- disinfect their hands;
- keep their distance from other people;
- strictly follow the instructions of the hospital staff.
To ensure the safety of patients and visitors, we recommend that visitors are vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 in a PCR test (valid for 72 hours) or present a certificate of recovery. Children aged under 14 are not allowed to participate in the visit.
