We are committed to providing a safe environment for our patients. Patients and their families may help by informing physicians and caregivers of:
Any food or drug allergies, and if you are taking or have been taking any medications, including over-the-counter and herbal products. Any changes in your condition and how you are responding to medications and treatments. If you have questions about your care, medications or treatments, please ask your doctors / nurses for more explanation. In addition, many factors, including your physical condition, medications and procedures, may make you feel weak or dizzy. It is important to know what activities your consultant/ doctor feels you are able to perform, and it is best initially not to try to do things such as get out of bed without first checking with hospital staff.
If your doctor says you may get out of bed, please use the bed controls to lower the bed to the lowest position and use the call system for assistance.
Use the call system in the bathroom if you become weak or need help getting back to bed.
Wear non-skid footwear. Ask your caregiver if you don't have any.
Have objects you use, such as bedside table, phone, call light, walker or cane placed within easy reach.
