STEPS TO REFER AND ADMIT A PATIENT
STEP 1: DIRECTLY CALL the NSPH BED MANAGER on 07 5459 7461
STEP 2:

You will need to provide the following information to the Bed Manager

  • Patients Name / DOB / Phone number
  • Diagnosis / COVID risk / Cognition
  • Health Fund / DVA etc.

The Bed Manager can then refer you to the most appropriate accepting VMO.

* Once the patient has been accepted by a VMO, they must wait either at the GP practice or at home if they are well enough. The Bed Manger will be in contact when a bed is available. If the patient is too unwell to do this, they must attend an Emergency Department.

*Please ensure the VMO referral letter is also faxed to NSPH on 07 5441 7598.

*NOTE: An admission to NSPH is dependent on the availability of a bed and a NSPH VMO accepting the care of the patient.
