The nursing staff at The Melbourne Eastern Private Hospital focus their care on you, the patient. This means that for each shift, one member of the nursing staff will be responsible for your care. Our staffing levels are organised according to patient numbers and needs.
Features of patient centered care include:
- Your participation in planning your care
- Involvement of your family when and where necessary and requested
- Continuity of care
- Comprehensive, coordinated and individualised care
- Where possible, maintenance of your home habits and routines, eg showering at your time of choice
Our staff are keen to ensure you receive as much information as possible to help you understand and manage your condition including pre-operative requirements, post-operative precautions/guidelines, and all relevant information pertinent to your discharge.
