What To Bring For Your Stay
- Dressing gowns
(All patients will be provided with pyjamas. Patients who wish to wear their own pyjamas may feel free to do so).
What Not To Bring
We request that you do not bring valuables or excessive cash. Our hospital will not assume responsibility for personal possessions kept in your room. If you have such items at the time of your admission, please arrange for them to be taken home.
Orientation At The Ward
To help you settle in, our ward staff will orientate you to the ward and the facilities available. You can also expect a visit by the ward doctor. This may involve taking a detailed medical history and ordering of tests, if necessary.
Daily Ward Routine
The routine in the ward includes activities such as ward rounds by doctors, medication, meals, visiting hours and bedtime. In addition, activities like laboratory tests, x-ray, treatment and other procedures will take place when required. Should you have any concerns, please feel free to discuss it with the ward nurse/manager. We will try our best to assist you in any way.
Wrist Identification Band
A wrist band indicating your name, NRIC and ward number will be issued to you upon your arrival at the ward. Please wear it at all times during your stay at the hospital as this enables our staff to verify your identity and determine if you have any drug allergy or likelihood of falls.
We would appreciate if you can help us by being sensitive to the needs of our patients.
