You are known as an ‘inpatient’ when you stay overnight in the hospital.

Day of admission

You must visit the Admissions and Discharge Office on the day of your admission, unless given other instructions by your doctor. Staff can then direct you to the appropriate ward or theatre.

During your stay

It’s important you let hospital staff know whenever you intend to leave the ward as medications and medical procedures may be scheduled for you at particular times.

Cleaning takes place on each ward regularly and may be noisy. You can check with the nursing staff for cleaning times.
