At Changi General Hospital, we recognise that visitors are important to the healing process for our patients. The following guidelines have been established to encourage visitors, while giving our patients time to rest and recover. We seek your cooperation to follow these guidelines because we care for our patients.
We encourage our patients’ friends and family members to visit them during their stay with us. However, we request that visitors observe our visiting hours strictly.
Visiting hours are from:
Wards:Mon to Fri: 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pmSat, Sun & Public Holiday: 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm
ICU:Mon to Sun including Public Holidays: 12pm to 2pm, 5pm to 9pm
After visiting hours, visitors will be asked to leave the wards, and all the wards’ doors will be locked.
Patients and visitors are responsible for all their own personal belongings and valuables. CGH does not accept responsibility for the loss of any personal items, including but not limited to cash, jewellery, clothing, spectacles, dentures, hearing aids, mobile phones, or other personal articles, on our premises unless they are placed in our safe or given to us for safekeeping.
To avoid property loss, we recommend patients to bring only essential items to the hospital, such as a list of medications that they are taking, and simple toiletries.
Patients are advised to send their valuables such as jewellery, credit cards, keys, wallets / handbags, and cash home. If need to, keep only a small amount of money in the room to pay for small purchases.
If this is not possible, our nurses will help to safe-keep the items, which will be sealed in an envelope and locked, during the patient’s stay with us. These valuables will be listed in a form, which will then be signed by the patient, the nurse who locks up the valuables, and another nurse who acts as a witness.
The valuables will be returned to patients upon their discharge and / or request by their next-of-kin (NOK).
Patients should inform our nurses if they are retaining the use of valuables such as spectacles, dentures, hearing aids and mobile phones. To prevent loss or damage to these valuables, patients are advised not to leave these items unattended / unprotected on meal tray, bed, bedside, locker, shower room, and any places where they may be lost or accidentally thrown out.
CGH will not accept responsibility for replacing lost or misplaced items that are kept and used by patients during their stay with us.
