Medicine

It is likely that your doctor will prescribe medication for you to use at home after the procedure. You are welcome to take the script to your own pharmacy. Only certain medical aids do allow dispensing from the hospital`s dispensary.


On admission

  • Please report at reception.
  • If you are going to be late please call us and your doctor as soon as possible, to enable us to make alternative arrangements.


Payments/Tariffs

Patients Belonging to a Registered Medical Aid Fund

Hospital tariffs are charged according to the benefit scale. Some medical aid funds do require their members to pay part of incurred costs.

We recommend that you get prior authorisation regarding:

  • Costs that will be covered
  • Your hospitalisation
  • Maximum benefits or exclusions which might be applicable
  • Benefit restrictions regarding prosthesis and instrumentation

Patients Not Belonging to a Medical Aid Fund

An advance payment equalling the estimated costs of your account will be payable on admission. Please contact the hospital reception regarding any enquiries about your hospitalisation. For the contact details on any of our hospitals, please click here.

The hospital account does not include any other incurred costs e.g. services rendered by your doctor, anaesthetist, radiologist, pathologist, etc. Please contact the hospital regarding advance payments prior to your admission.


Pre-admission

  • Contact your medical aid fund for pre-authorisation regarding your hospitalisation. Admission without such an authorisation can have serious financial implications.
  • A motivational letter is often required by the medical aid / medical scheme for certain procedures. This letter must be obtained from your doctor, prior to admission.

Pre-admission clinic

  • This clinic ensures a very positive, pleasant and private experience when it comes to admission of a patient for a surgical procedure.
  • The whole admission is completed for the patient prior to admission to the ward. Potential problems with authorisation numbers can be dealt with in a relaxed atmosphere.
  • During the visit to the pre-admission clinic the patient is informed about his procedure and stay in hospital.
  • When a customer is not in a position to visit our hospital for a pre-admission appointment, the hospital will contact the patient for telephonic information.


Safety precautions

  • It is extremely dangerous to drive, operate machinery or to play sport within the first 12 hours after an operation. It is therefore important that a day patient arrange for someone to bring them to the hospital and collect them after the operation.
  • Rest is an important element of recuperation. Maintain a quiet pace until your doctor indicates that you may return to your usual routine.


Smoking

Smoking is not permitted in any ward. Patients and visitors may only smoke in the designated smoking areas.


Surgical patients

  • Please note that the time you are asked to report to the hospital will differ from the time at which your operation actually takes place. This is done to facilitate the time allocation for the theatres as well as to accommodate emergencies and variances, which occur from time to time.
  • Please prepare yourself for a waiting period and bring reading material or something else to keep yourself occupied.


Valuables

It is advisable not to bring any jewellery, valuable articles and large amounts of money or firearms. The hospital does not take responsibility for the safekeeping of these articles.


Visiting hours

To allow doctors time to complete their rounds and allow nurses to complete all necessary treatments, please adhere to the visiting hours for each ward. No visitors will be allowed between 13:00 and 14:00 thus to ensure that the compulsory rest and sleep time can be observed.
