If you are taking any medications please bring them with you and hand them to the nursing staff. If you have written details of any treatment you need, show them this too. Please tell staff if you suffer from any allergies. The doctor will need to review your medication and you will be informed should a change be necessary.
Bring the cases for your glasses and hearing aid so they can be put away safely when you are not wearing them.
Every care is taken but the hospital cannot accept responsibility for lost or broken dentures. Bring your cleaning container with you.
Please do not keep any valuable jewellery or large sums of money with you, as Whangarei Hospital cannot accept responsibility in the event of loss or theft of any personal property retained by patients. When necessary, valuables or money may be kept in a locked cupboard in the ward.
Please use earphones for radios and televisions, if possible, in consideration of other patients. Televisions are not allowed in some areas, so please ask your nurse.
