Health & Safety

Get the most out of
your treatments


We are committed to ensure your safety at every step of your hospital journey. Whether you are here for a routine check-up, a complex surgical procedure, or any other healthcare need, health and safety guidelines have been meticulously designed to provide you with the highest level of care and peace of mind.


While you are in the hospital, it is important for you and your doctor to talk about your medication. Before your admission, inform your doctor, nurse or pharmacist about any medication you are consuming and bring along your medication list.

For example:

  • Prescription medication including eye / ear drops, inhalers, etc.
  • Over-the-counter medication (like aspirin and cough medicine)
  • Vitamins
  • Herbal products
  • Health food products

Let your doctor and nurse know if you have any allergies to food or drugs or have ever had a bad reaction to any medication, food or latex products.

Ask your nurse about your medication– what they are, what they look like, what they do, at what time they are given and what side effects may occur. Look at all your medication before you take them. If you do not recognise the medication, please ask your healthcare provider.

Know what medication you take and why you take them. While you’re in the hospital, your medication might change. Learning about the new ones your doctor has prescribed for you is very important for your recovery.


Hand hygiene is the best way to prevent the spread of germs. You can clean your hands by performing  hand wash or hand rub using sanitiser. Each area is equipped with hand hygiene facilities and products for use by staff, patients, caregivers and visitors.
