Employee thermal scanning and site access

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.

P Block car park access at Monash Medical Centre

With the consolidation of site access, the door from P block car park has been closed and the lift will not be operating between level one and two.

Employees with a disability that require lift access should advise Monash Medical Centre site management and they will be relocated to an alternate car park with appropriate access via the main entrance. Employees requiring use of the lift will be granted access to the P Block lift while awaiting relocation.

Remember: do not attend work if you feel ill

If you have a temperature of 37.5 Celsius or above, you will not be able to work.
