What To Expect On Admission

When you arrive at Perth Clinic, our friendly reception staff will assist you with your admission. Once the general admission paperwork is completed, we’ll show you to your room,

Nursing staff will complete a nursing admission and ask you to complete a range of questionnaires which will assist in developing your treatment plan. The admitting nurse will explain the ward routine, and the environment, including catering and housekeeping procedures. Please inform us of any food allergies or special dietary requirements you have, so our onsite chef can organise meals accordingly.

Any medications/prescriptions that you‘ve brought in with you should be given to the admitting nurse for safe storage.

Your doctor will assess you within 12 hours of your admission to confirm your treatment program, as well as the medications prescribed to you, the therapy group you will attend and whether you have leave whilst you are a patient in the Clinic. You may also be seen for a physical assessment by the Perth Clinic visiting general practitioner or registrar in accordance with your doctors instructions.

It’s very important that you attend therapy groups, as they are an integral part of your treatment. Our research has shown that regular participation in the group program will result in a better outcome from your admission.

Our staff are very committed to meeting the needs of our patients and ensuring you receive the best of care throughout your stay with us.
