Your Nurse Unit Manager‘s primary function is to coordinate your treatment plan and the multi-disciplinary treatment team. Your Nurse Unit Manager will meet with you on admission or the next business day following your admission to orientate you to the New Farm Clinic staff and program.
The first days of your admission are usually spent familiarising yourself with your new surroundings as well as commencing to build a therapeutic rapport with your treating team and Unit staff.
To make this transition more comfortable we endeavour to allocate newly admitted patients a private room, however this is not always possible. Clinical needs will determine the accommodation you are allocated. You may be required to transfer to another room, shared room or different Unit during your hospitalisation.
You will feel most comfortable wearing casual clothing around the Clinic during the day and will also require appropriate night attire, toiletries and other personal items. Footwear is required to be worn at all times. Please clearly label your belongings.
New Farm Clinic does not accept liability for lost, stolen or damaged property. A small personal safe is provided for your use located in your room if you wish to keep small amounts of money.
When you are admitted please ask our staff if mobiles can be used in your room. Mobiles may be used in all public areas. New Farm Clinic does not accept any responsibility for loss or damage to your mobile phone.
Each Unit has a comfortable lounge room and large television with access to Foxtel; laundry facilities are located on each floor with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.
Visiting hours are 4:00pm to 8:00pm during the week and 10:00am to 8:00pm on weekends. There is ample free parking on the property for visitors. Children must be directly supervised by visitors at all times.
If you would like a relative or friend to join you for a meal in the Dining Room (at a nominal charge), meal vouchers can be purchased from Reception weekdays and the Kitchen on weekends during meal times.
The patient noticeboard in the Dining Room has a copy of the Group Therapy Program timetable, information about Official Visitors such as the Community Visitor and Carers & Consumer Group representatives plus other general information to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
