If you or someone you know is going to hospital, it's also important to be aware of the risks of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs), and how to prevent them, as they are an ever-present factor in every health system.
My Stay in Hospital provides a range of information on how this risk can be reduced.
We do our best to ensure our hospitals maintain a high standard of safety. You are welcome to
learn more about the safety of our hospitals.
Understanding Your Rights
Everyone seeking or receiving healthcare in Australia has certain rights and responsibilities that are important to contributing to safe, high quality care. Patients, families and carers working together with the Healthcare team will lead to the best possible outcomes.
The Charter describes the rights that consumers, or someone they care for, can expect when receiving health care.
