MPHB Preadmission Clinic
At Mater Private Hospital Brisbane Preadmission Clinic we understand that coming to hospital can be an unsettling experience. The Preadmission Clinic staff value you as our patient and our aim is to provide exceptional care to you, from preadmission through to discharge.
Prior to your hospital admission you will have the opportunity to complete some of the preadmission paperwork and investigations with our dedicated Preadmission Clinic team.
Many of the relevant forms can be found in Mater Private Hospital Brisbane Admission Guide which you should have received from your specialist. Please complete these forms and bring them with you to your Preadmission Clinic appointment. If you do not have an Admission Guide, we can supply one for you.
During your preadmission assessment your individual needs will be identified by our highly experienced nursing staff. If it is identified that you will require other services while a patient, we can arrange these for you. Please notify the Preadmission Clinic staff of any other individual requests that you may have.
As part of the preadmission assessment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your health and medication history as well as raise any concerns or questions about your pending admission. Discharge information and advice is also available at the Preadmission Clinic. We encourage you to discuss any concerns that you may have that could affect your discharge as soon as possible, so that we can develop a discharge plan to suit your needs.
Attending the Preadmission Clinic will offer you the opportunity to understand the information and clarify anything that you are uncertain about. If you have any concerns prior to your admission, please feel free to contact the Preadmission Clinic staff.
