Advice on Preparation for Hospital Admission

  1. Please bring to the hospital any x-rays, models or splints which you may have at home.
  2. Please bring to the hospital any prescription medication, which you are currently taking.
  3. The hospital will contact you the day before surgery regarding your time of admission.  If you haven’t heard from them, contact them direct.
  4. If the surgery is planned for the MORNING DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING FROM MIDNIGHT ON THE NIGHT PRIOR TO ADMISSION.
  5. If the surgery is planned for the AFTERNOON DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER A LIGHT BREAKFAST OF TEA AND TOAST BEFORE 6:00 A.M.
  6. Please remember to complete the hospital admission form and post it to the hospital well ahead of the surgery date (at least 2 weeks).
  7. Please remember to bring your health fund details as the hospital will require them on admission.
  8. If you need to change or cancel your admission date please contact the practice as soon as possible on 9262 9318 so that alternative arrangements can be made.
