Due to the current epidemic progression, patient testing before admission has been extended in compliance with the latest Cantonal HPCI Unit guidelines.

    or
  • you have been administered 2 or 3 doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine (less than 4 months since the last dose) and are in possession of your vaccination certificate,
    or
  • you have been fully vaccinated (for less than 4 months) with one of the following vaccines and are in possession of your vaccination certificate:
    - AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria®/ Covishield™)
    - Janssen / Johnson & Johnson (unique dose of vaccine for more than 22 days to be considered as fully vaccinated)
    - Sinopharm / BIBP
    - Sinovac (Coronavac)
    - Covaxin®

WEARING A MASK 
Single rooms: a surgical mask is available if you wish to wear one when someone is in your room.
Rooms with 2 or 4 beds: wearing a surgical mask is compulsory in the room, except when in bed.

 

VISITS

In compliance with the directive of the 25.08.2021 from the Conseil d’État (Council of State) updated on the 17.11.2021, all hospitalised patient’s visitors and accompanying persons over 16 years of age need to present the following documents at the entrance of the Clinic:
• a valid CoVID certificate,
AND
• an official identity document.

Visitors without a CoVID certificate can present a rapid antigen test attestation (paid for by the Confederation) carried out in a test center. This attestation does not allow you to obtain a CoVID certificate.

These measures are in addition to wearing a surgical mask and other hygiene measures.

Short visits are limited to 2 visitors at the same time per room, per patient and per day between 09:00 am and 09:00 pm, except under the following circumstances:

  • Intensive care unit: visits are only allowed by appointment. Please contact the Unit Manager on 021 641 31 85.
  • Maternity ward: visits are allowed at any time an with no time limit for the father/partner and siblings or a relative if the mother is on her own, and 1 additional short visit per day.
  • For special situations, please contact the Unit Manager. 


If you have any symptoms, even mild ones (loss of taste, loss of smell, fever, cough or cold), please postpone your visit.

Hygiene measures must be scrupulously observed at all times (wearing a surgical mask, except for children under 5 years old, sanitising your hands and keeping a social distance of 1.5 metre).

Visitors are not allowed to eat or drink in the patient’s room

Thank you for your understanding.
