Guidelines for visitors to the Gynecology and Obstetrics unit

You can safely attend any scheduled appointments, examinations and procedures even during the COVID-19 epidemic. If you are coming in for an appointment or treatment at HUS within 10 days of being exposed to or infected with COVID-19, contact the unit responsible for your care for more instructions. You will find the contact information in your appointment letter or on the clinic’s website. If necessary, you can also call HUS’s switchboard 09 4711 for contact information. Please also see the site Instructions for patients.

Please do not visit the hospital if you have symptoms of infection (respiratory tract or intestinal symptoms).

Using surgical face masks in maternity hospitals

We provide surgical face masks for all expectant mothers coming in to give birth, and their support persons and doulas. Using protective equipment, observing good hand hygiene, keeping safe distances, and limiting movement are measures we use to prevent the spread of coronavirus in hospitals.

As a rule, we recommend that women giving birth and their support persons remain in their own room during and after labor. Furthermore, we ask that you avoid leaving the hospital during your stay.
