Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospital is constantly updating measures put in place to safeguard patients, staff, and visitors accordingly. Therefore, we urge you to continuously check with us for updates. In line with these updates, patients continue to receive one visitor per day (registered next of kin ONLY) for 30 minutes. However, only visitors with SURGICAL MASKS will be allowed within patient areas. Please refer to the visiting hours page for the revised visiting times. To adequately assist emergency cases during this period, the Persons Under Investigations (PUI) isolation ward remains fully functional. The ward ensures that all emergency cases receive care while a Covid-19, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is being conducted.

Medical Ward

The medical ward is situated on the first floor North Wing, making it convenient for relatives and visitors who are not comfortable riding in the elevator.

The unit houses 34 beds with most rooms containing twin beds. Only one room holds six (6) beds. Although the ward houses both male and female patients, the patients are roomed by gender, i.e. females together and males on their own.

The ward is run by a clinical matron and a sister-in-charge who oversee a staff of highly qualified and experienced nurses. Owing to the stringent infection control measures that are practiced at the hospital, the overall environment in the ward is very clean and hygienic.

An emergency drug room that is situated on the same floor as the medical ward means that even those patients that are admitted at night will still access their medications timeously.

The nurse to patient ratio is 1:7.
