On arrival

Drop-off area

Patients can be dropped off and collected from the main hospital Main Entrance at 40 Chasely Street, Auchenflower.

Admissions desk

A volunteer will greet you on arrival and direct you to the Admission Desk to register your attendance. Admissions staff are aware of theatre scheduling and ensure patients are admitted according to their procedure time, while making every effort to keep your wait to a minimum.

Patient progress

Your family and friends will be able to track your progress through theatre from admission to discharge (to home or a ward) by checking our electronic tracking boards in the hospital or online using a patient case number. This case number will be provided by admissions upon arrival.

Admission process

On admission we will ask you to confirm the information previously provided and sign the following documentation:

  • Health Fund Claim form.
  • Informed Financial Consent (if not already completed online).
  • Acknowledgment and Disclaimer form (if not already completed online).

At this time any outstanding excess or co-payment will be collected. Payments can be made by credit card, EFTPOS (limits apply) or cash at the Admission Desk. It is a requirement of your admission that we collect and store your credit/debit card details.

If you are being admitted for medical reasons (ie not having a surgery or a procedure) or are being admitted before your day of surgery, arrangements will be made to escort you to the ward when your accommodation is available.

Going to theatre

If you are admitting on your day of surgery, you will be escorted to the Day of Surgery Unit by a volunteer. You will be asked to take a seat until you are called by nursing staff who will prepare you for your procedure. You will then be escorted through to the procedural area where a nurse will ask you to confirm your medical history, take your weight and height and assist you to change into theatre attire. Your surgeon and anaesthetist may visit you during this time. A pharmacist may also discuss your medications with you.

Please note: We are unable to accommodate support persons in our Day of Surgery Admission lounge. However, a support person may remain with a patient at all times if they are a carer for a child under the age of 18 or they are a carer for a patient with a disability.
