Note: Flinders Medical Centre has a breastfeeding room with table and chair and power point and an ensuite bathroom: Ward 4C (room 4A-210).
To access the room University staff and students need to ring the bell, located on the wall above the swipe sensor (a black box on the right-hand side of the door) and be let in by the nursing staff. They will then need to sign in the paper contact tracing form (located at the nurses’ station). This requirement is applicable to all users of the room, regardless whether they are Flinders Medical Centre staff or University – it is a requirement for anyone entering the ward who is not there for working or patient visiting purposes. You will need to ring the bell even if your Flinders Medical Centre staff card opens the doors when scanned.
For assistance with breastfeeding and returning to work or study you can also contact the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA).
