During your stay with us, we will endeavour to make you as comfortable as possible. Please let our staff know if you need anything or have any questions during your stay. We are here for you.
We do ask that you show courtesy to other people in our care by limiting noise and the number of visitors seeing you at any one time to reduce noise on our wards.
If you are staying overnight with us, we will aim to discharge you home by 10:00am the day you are scheduled to go home. We recommend you organise transport home for this time in advance. If this is not possible you are welcome to wait in any of our patient or visitor lounges. If you wish to remain in your room after 10:00am on the day you are leaving, please discuss this with the Nurse Manager the day before.
Your specialist will have given you some idea of how long you will need to stay after your operation. The nursing staff in our Day of Surgery Admissions will discuss this with you on admission. Please make your travel arrangements accordingly.
If you are staying for one of more nights, your visitors are welcome between 1:00pm and 7:00pm and outside these hours by arrangement.
Please note that Level 2 (the Cardiac Ward), ICU and HDU are closed for a rest period between 1:00pm and 3:00pm daily.
Please talk to your nurse to arrange this. For more information on visitors – click here.
