During The Stay
  1. When a patient arrives at the ward, our ward staff will orientate him/her to the ward and the facilities available. The patient will then be diagnosed by the ward doctor - this may involve taking a detailed medical history and ordering of tests if necessary.
  2. During the patient's stay in the hospital, he/she will be attended by a team doctors comprising of medical specialists, assisted by medical officers and house officers. Every care is taken in respect of patient care, treatment, meals, dress and health recovery.
