Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I be at the hospital if I'm admitted?

The length of your stay will be based on your progress and your treatment as prescribed by your doctor.

Why does the medical team keep asking me to confirm my name and date of birth? ?

The first step towards keeping you safe is consistently confirming your identity. In providing quality medical care we must verify your identity to make sure the right patient is receiving care appropriately. Robust sources of information such as patient’s name, date of birth and wrist tag help reduce the potential for errors. Confirming your identity is a safety precaution.

Name of drugs can sometimes be long and difficult to pronounce correctly. It is advised you save an updated list of your prescriptions, dosage, frequency and side effects on a device or a dairy. Ensure you carry the list with you, especially when seeing a doctor or another health care provider.
