Visitor Restrictions at BDH 14 July 2020

After careful consideration we wish to inform you all that BDH will return to lockdown for all visitors, from Mid-day (1200) today.  This is due as a result of the rapidly changing situation with COVID 19 in communities across Victoria.  Unless for exceptional circumstances we will not accept visitors to BDH from this time.

We have discussed this in detail earlier this morning with the senior management team, and we have also contacted neighbouring health services to determine their current situations.  We are united across the Loddon Shire that this is the best approach for our communities at this time.

This decision has been made with the health, wellbeing and safety of all patients, residents and staff as the number one priority.  We will inform all families via email and phone calls today and will also update our Facebook page accordingly.  This decision was not made lightly as we all know the importance of social and family support, but at this time, the risk of potential spread into our community is too great.

Once the current situation settles to a level that it is deemed safe to once again allow visitors into BDH, we will again open our doors for family and friends to visit.  However, at this stage it is unclear when this may occur.


What this means…


  1. Any visitor must be pre authorised by either DCS/NUM and only for exceptional circumstances.

  2. That visitor will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and require evidence of influenza vaccination.

  3. Visitor must wear a mask. meet the resident in their room and maintain social distancing.

  4. Only one visitor at a time

  5. Visitor should only stay up to 15 minutes.

  6. These restrictions will be reviewed and updated in line with the region and department directives.

Story Collection during Covid-19

Women’s Health Loddon Mallee believes that everyone has a story to tell, and that these stories are important. Data is being collected all over the globe during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we want to ensure that the unique and diverse stories from the Loddon Mallee are captured. We would like to invite women, men, and gender diverse people across our region to share their experiences, feelings, observations, struggles and successes during the Covid-19 pandemic. 
We are collecting this qualitative data through an online survey, which can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/r/RGTXX95.   We would like to invite you to participate in telling your story and would kindly appreciate you sharing this invitation with your networks and community members.   The information collected through this process will help to inform future practice and initiatives. The second aim of this project is to provide people with a safe space to share their thoughts. Due to this, there is the opportunity to participate without giving consent to WHLM to use or share the story.   If consent is given to WHLM to use the story, all stories will first be de-identified. 

If you have any questions about this project, don’t hesitate to email at acolquhoun@whlm.org.au. 

National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce

The National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce is a collaboration of peak health professional bodies across Australia whose members are providing clinical care to people with COVID-19. The taskforce is undertaking continuous evidence surveillance to identify and rapidly synthesise emerging research in order to provide national, evidence-based guidelines and clinical flowcharts for the clinical care of people with COVID-19. The guidelines address questions that are specific to managing COVID-19 and cover the full disease course across mild, moderate, severe and critical illness. These are ‘living’ guidelines, updated with new research in near real-time in order to give reliable, up-to-the minute advice to clinicians providing frontline care in this unprecedented global health crisis.
