What not to bring

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​To protect you and your valuables we ask you not to bring the following:

  • Valuables (any jewellery or large amounts of money over $20)
  • Large bags/suitcases or excessive clothing
  • Remove as much jewellery as possible – this includes body piercings
  • Alcohol or illegal drugs
  • No candles or oil burners ​

The hospital staff cannot accept responsibility for your belongings if they are lost or stolen. Please leave them at home. If you must bring them with you make sure a family member looks after them at all times. You will at times be away from your ward bed having tests or surgery.

R.E.A.C.H​ out to us

If you are worried that you or the person you care for is getting worse while they are in hospital, REACH out to us:

  1. Talk to the nurse looking after you or your loved one.
  2. Ask to speak to the nurse in charge and request a clinical review.
  3. If there is no response within 30 minutes, or you are still concerned, call the emergency number using the ward phone and say “This is a REACH Call”, then state the patient name and the ward you are on.
