For all caregivers [No visitors are allowed]

  •  Only 1 caregiver per patient is allowed.
  • Face mask must be worn at all times in the hospital.
  • Wash your hand or use hand sanitiser when entering or leaving ward.
  • The Café only allows dining for staff and out-patients only. Seating area to be reduced to 1 table – 1 seat.

For all vendor/contractor representatives

  • Vendor/suppliers/contractors are not allowed on the premise except for the delivery of consignments, goods or equipment, or for repair and maintenance work.

Keeping All Visitors Safe

Keeping all visitors safe is our utmost priority. Nilai Medical has implemented additional precautionary measures to increase the safety of the premise, including frequent sanitising and cleanings, and temperature assessments.

One single entrance

We continue to limit to ONE entrance to our hospital as a measure in our safety efforts. This allows us to effectively screen everyone who comes into the hospital. The entrance is located at the Accident & Emergency Department (A&E); our main entrance at the lobby will remain closed temporarily until further notice.

Your temperature is taken by a no-touch thermal scanner located at the Primary Triage (a tent set outside the Accident & Emergency Department). Visitors are not permitted to enter if they exhibit signs or symptoms.

A health declaration form will need to be completed at the Primary Triage before entering any of our facility. We understand these screenings and forms may be an inconvenience; however, it is an important step to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. We appreciate your help in protecting our patients and staff.

Masks and Hand Sanitisers

All visitors and hospital staff members are required to wear a mask at all times within the facility. Social distancing measures are also strictly implemented around the hospital areas.

We place great emphasis on hand hygiene and sanitisation. Hand sanitisers are accessible at various locations within the hospital and instructions on effective hand washing is placed near sinks for visitors’ reference.

For those who use the elevator for your appointments, there will be limits for people to be in the space at the same time. Our elevators are sanitised every 2 hours, as well other frequently touched places are constantly being disinfected by our cleaning staff to halt the spread of germs.

Drive-thru screening services

We also provide drive-thru screening services for our visitors to get tested safely and conveniently. COVID-19 tests (RT-PCR, RT-PCR Antibody IgM and RTK Antigen Test) are available and can be done within the facility by appointment basis.

While getting tested in the comfort of your car, be assured that our staff members are following all safety best practices per the Ministry of Health’s requirement including the use of Personal Protective Equipment to minimise any exposures or hazards.
