It is important for us to know what medicines you are taking. We also need to know if there have been any recent changes to your medicines.
Please do not bring valuables, large sums of money or jewellery. Cabrini does not accept responsibility for patients’ valuables or property brought into the hospital.
If you have appointed an Enduring Power of Attorney (Medical Treatment) and/or completed a Refusal of Treatment Certificate and wish them to be applied to your hospital admission, please inform the nurse on admission.
If you are having a procedure, certain treatments or investigations including a blood transfusion, you are required to complete an Acknowledgement of Consent. Your doctor is responsible for ensuring you are adequately informed of the proposed treatment or procedure before completing the form.
A brochure outlining the significant risks, benefits and alternatives to blood transfusion is available from the Nursing Preadmission Service or your ward nurse after admission. If a staff member is exposed to your blood or other body fluids through a sharps/needlestick injury or by other means, your permission will be sought to test your blood for infective agents that could have been transmitted.
If you have appointed an Enduring Power of Attorney (Medical Treatment Act) and/or completed a Refusal of Treatment Certificate and want them applied to your hospital admission, please bring the forms with you and inform the nurse on your admission.

At Cabrini, we believe doctors and other healthcare practitioners should not intentionally cause the death of a person in their care and should not assist a person in taking their own life. Cabrini will therefore not be participating in voluntary assisted dying for patients receiving care with us at our facilities or in their homes while under our care.
