During Your Stay
When You Arrive
Please report to main Reception.
We offer a range of private and shared rooms, each equipped with private telephone, flat screen television, air conditioning and ensuite facilities. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preference of room. This may not always be possible on admission, however, we will ensure that your accommodation is appropriate for your clinical requirements, and we will transfer you to a room of your choice if and when one becomes available.
The ward areas are under the supervision of the Nurse Unit Manager during weekdays and a Hospital Co-ordinator (senior registered nurse manager) on evening, night and weekend shifts.
The Front Office/Reception is open during the following hours:
Monday to Saturday 6.45am to 8.30pm
Sunday 9.00am to 8.00pm
Children In Hospital
A parent/Guardian is required to stay with a child during their entire hospital stay. We will provide a fold out bed for one parent to stay overnight with their child. We also encourage parents, where possible, to assist with the washing, dressing, feeding and entertaining of their child as this helps minimise the trauma of being handled by strangers.
