Please bring sufficient supplies of all medications you will need for the duration of your admission in their original, labelled packaging. Remember to bring any inhalers, creams, ointments, patches, eye or ear drops, injections or complimentary medicines that you use.
Upon arrival to hospital, your own medications will be reviewed and secured into your bedside cabinet for safety purposes. Some specific medications will be required to be secured in the hospital’s medication safe as per legislative requirements. Should this be required, you will be provided with a receipt tag for your medications to be returned to you on the day of your discharge.
Nurses will scan the medication and your arm band when administering your medication. Medications will be administered within 1.5 hours of the time your doctor has prescribed. If you notice you are missing any of your regular medication or the administration times are not the same as your usual routine, please discuss with your nurse.
