Admissions and Discharge Procedures
When you arrive at the department / unit, your medical and nursing history will be taken from you, helping us create your individual treatment protocol. The division of labor is based on a method in which a member of the nursing staff is put in charge of several patients and is responsible for their care, including coordinating the various parties treating the patient such as dietician, physical therapist, social worker, inter-departmental consultants and community therapy systems – to ensure continuity of treatment during and after hospitalization. During and after hospitalization, you are entitled to receive medical information from your medical file, free of charge, from a member of the department staff. Following your discharge from the hospital, information can be obtained through the hospital's medical records department (for a fee).
