House rules : these rules govern how we treat each other at OLVG

We welcome you to OLVG. We think it is important that everyone feels comfortable here - which is why it is important to establish some clear ground rules with each other. When you enter our hospital, we request that you follow our house rules. A pleasant environment can't be created alone!


No one is permitted to make hurtful, discriminatory or offensive remarks. 

Visiting hours

Our visitors shall adhere to the ward visiting hours. A maximum of 2 visitors per patient is permitted. 

Theft and destruction

In the event of theft or destruction of property, we always call the police. There is CCTV surveillance in and around the hospital which keeps track of what's going on.

Drugs and alcohol

The use of drugs or drinking alcoholic beverages, non-alcoholic beer or wine in or around the hospital is not permitted. We shall refuse entry to people who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
