Every patient will be required to wear a wrist identification band with an attached Real-time Location System (RTLS) tag upon admission. The band will hold information such as the patient’s name, NRIC, ward number and address to enable identification by hospital staff. The RTLS tag is a safety feature that will enable the tracking of a patient's location within the hospital. Please wear it at all times during your stay in our hospital.
Consent to Treatment
Upon your admission to the hospital, you are deemed to have agreed to the required treatment for your medical condition. Some procedures may require your consent in writing. Your doctor will explain these procedures to you in detail.
Daily Ward Routine
The daily ward routine consists of the following:
- Ward rounds by the doctors (usually in the mornings)
- Meals (breakfast, lunch, tea break, dinner)
- Visiting Hours (12pm – 2pm and 5pm – 8.30pm daily)
The routine may vary if you are scheduled to undergo clinical tests, X-ray, or other clinical procedures.
Nurse Call Button
If you require assistance at any time of the day, please press the Nurse Call Button located on your bed panel and a nurse will attend to you shortly.
To aid our patients’ recovery, our dieticians and chefs work closely to plan the menus in our hospitals. A variety of cuisines are available to patients. Halal meals will be served to Muslim patients. The care team will also take note if you require a special diet.
Under the law, smoking is prohibited within the hospital premises. Please be considerate to other patients.
A patients’ lounge is located in every ward. The lounge is equipped with a television set, daily newspapers in various languages, and other reading materials.
Leaving the Ward
If you wish to leave the ward for any reason, please inform the staff on duty at all times so that they can take note of your whereabouts and ensure that you do not miss your medication, scheduled tests or visitors.
Leaving the Hospital Premises
For your own safety, please do not leave the hospital premises until your doctor has cleared you for discharge. Patients who request to be discharged against the doctors’ advice will be required to sign an AOR (At Own Risk) form.
