Before Admission

Once the decision has been made that you require admission to Al Saha AL Shifa Hospital, we ask that you deliver, post or fax your Admission paperwork to the hospital AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (please ensure that the original is brought with you on admission).

Your Admission paperwork contains the following forms, which all need to be forwarded to the hospital prior to admission:

  • Registration Form(to be completed in full by the patient or guardian)
  • Surgical Consent Form (this is the consent for surgery completed during your visit with your doctor)
  • Privacy Consent Form (to be completed in full by the patient or guardian)
  • Medical History Form (to be completed in full by the patient or guardian)

Our reception is open Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 8pm. It is preferable that you attend in person to deliver the necessary paperwork, but if this is not possible then you can post or fax your admission papers.

If you have any questions regarding your procedure and brief stay in hospital, please contact the Admission Office on (06)- 5632618.

Your admission

When you arrive at the Hospital, you will need to report to the Main Reception Desk.

To enable staff to prepare you adequately for your procedure and to allow time for anesthetic consultation there may be a waiting time between your admission and procedure time and we therefore ask that you set aside the whole day for your admission.

Due to limited space within the Day Surgery Unit, only ONE relative/person is to accompany you to this area. This person may stay with you until you go to the operating theater.

If admission forms and consents have been faxed to the hospital, please ensure that you bring the original with you.

Preparation

To ensure your stay with us is as comfortable and pleasant as possible, please read the following information carefully.
