To minimise undetected illness spreading within the hospital setting, we have begun checking employees arriving in inpatient and clinical areas for elevated temperature.
To assist, we have rolled out tripod-mounted thermal scanners across our Casey, Clayton, Dandenong, Kingston, and Moorabbin hospital sites. These scanners produce quick and accurate responses while enabling us to continue appropriate social distancing.
Patients and visitors will also be scanned using this method at the current entry points. They will still be asked the current screening questions.
