Hospital staff strives to ensure safe hospitalization, conducive to a return to health.
Admission to the hospital.
- How to prepare for a hospital stay.
- In the case of planned admission: a referral from a GP, ID card, the results of previous diagnostic tests (laboratory tests, X-ray, ultrasound, consultations, etc.) and hospital discharge summaries should be provided.
- In the case of unplanned admission, i.e., in the states of imminent danger to health or life, an ID card must be presented within 7 days following the end of the hospital stay.
- A patient admitted to the hospital should have toiletries, a towel, pyjamas, slippers, underwear, cutlery, a plate and a mug. The hospital provides the above accessories if the patient does not have them.
Stay on a hospital ward.
- Hospital provides patients with food according to the dietary recommendations of doctors.
Any other food requires consultation with a nurse on duty.
Patients can use devices available in hospital wards that facilitate the use and storage of their own food (fridges, electric kettles, microwave ovens).
- The hospital does not limit visits from the patient’s loved ones, but the preferred visiting hours are 12.00 to 19.00. Visits at other times are only possible following consultation with a nurse on duty.
- In the case of patients staying at the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, it is preferred that only one visitor at a time be present at the patient’s bedside.
- In general wards, it is preferred that only two visitors at a time are present at the patient’s bedside.
- Children under 12 years can stay in the ward under adult supervision only.
In justified cases, a visit to the hospital may be limited or suspended.
Visitors are required to:
- be quiet during their visits to the hospital
- comply with the guidelines and instructions of the hospital staff
- respect the privacy and property of patients
- respect hospital property
Visitors are asked not to:
- bring in any alcohol, cigarettes or drugs
- bring animals into the hospital
- record in any way (take photos, record videos) people present in the ward
- Communication and media
- Mobile phones. Patients are allowed to use their own mobile phones:
- on the ward – without limits
- in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit – only to communicate necessary information.
- Landline phones. In the hospital, we provide a separate landline telephone for patients. Immobilized patients can use a wireless phone provided by staff, which can be brought to the patient's bed.
- Internet. Hospitals are equipped with computers providing free internet access and designed for use by patients.
- Television. All wards are equipped with televisions (free access).
- Religious needs
Upon request, the patient can receive a visit from a priest.
Discharge from hospital
The patient is discharged from hospital when:
- the patient's condition no longer requires hospitalization
- the patient flagrantly violates the rules of the hospital
- at the request of the patient.
In the case of discharge from hospital at the patient’s request, the doctor will explain the risks associated with the discontinuation of treatment.
