It is important for us that you as a patient or visitor receive all relevant information on the current situation in the Salem-Spital.

For the protection of our patients and employees, the following visitor rule currently applies at Salem-Spital:

  • Each patient is only permitted to have 1 visitor per day for a maximum of 1 hour.
  • Patients decide which visit they want in coordination with the responsible specialist.
  • No more than two visitors may be in a patient's room at the same time.
  • Children under 12 years are not admitted.
  • Visitors showing symptoms of an infection (fever, cough, flu-like symptoms) have to stay at home. They are not permitted to visit the hospital.

Exceptions are made for:

  • Partners of women in labour or in postnatal care or visitors of dying patients.  

All visitors must adhere to the following hygiene measures:

  • Disinfect your hands when you arrive at the hospital and again before you leave.
  • Wear a mask. Masks are handed out to visitors upon arrival (hospital entrance or reception). Cloth masks are not permitted. Please wear the hygiene masks from the clinic.
  • Visitors also wear the mask in the patient's room, it is not allowed to take it off.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly, maintain a safe distance from others and do not shake hands.

In the Hirslanden clinics in Berne the general obligation to wear masks applies.
