Visits in the hospital restricted
Visits to the Tyks hospitals are banned until further notice in accordance with the Finnish government's decision.
However, we allow visits from close relatives without symtoms to critically ill patients and children, visits from close relatives to patients in terminal care, and visits from partners or support persons to the labour ward.
Restrictions on visits apply to both wards and outpatient clinics.
Please contact the ward in question in advance to ensure that your visit is suitable.
Visiting hours at our wards are usually
from 1 pm to 7 pm.
The following are always open for visits: Tyks Hospital Otorhinolaryngology Clinic, Paediatric Clinic, psychiatry departments and Tyks Surgical Hospital.
Changes to visiting hours are posted on the web pages of the departments:
Consult the personnel of the departments for visits outside visiting hours.
Enquiries about patients
Patient information is provided only with patient’s permission. If you are unable to give this permission, only your closest of kin will be informed.
We may tell largely about the patient’s condition by telephone. We hope that the patient’s family agrees who is the one who asks about the patient’s condition, return home etc. You may reserve time to talk with the doctor.
