When you arrive

We recommend you arrive earlier than planned to allow time for the visitor screening process. The visitor screening process has three steps to it.

Prior to entry, all visitors are required to complete an online form. This form asks a series of screening questions. You may access the online form here or scan the QR code using your mobile device when you arrive at the hospital entrance. We recommend you complete the form prior to arrival to aid the visitor screening process. 

After completing the form, present to St Vincent’s Staff at the welcome desk. 

Listen carefully to St Vincent’s Staff and follow their directions. You will undergo a temperature check via a thermal camera prior to entry.
