The Modbury Hospital Emergency Department (ED) is open 24-hours a day, providing health care to more than 38,000 people of all ages each year, who have life-threatening and non-life threatening emergencies.
When you arrive at ED you will be seen by a senior nurse to collect information and assess your illness or injury.
After seeing the triage nurse, you may be asked to wait in the waiting room. Your waiting time will depend on how busy the department is and the number of patients with serious conditions. The waiting area may appear quiet but this doesn’t necessarily mean the ED itself is quiet.
While waiting for medical treatment in the ED, you will be continuously assessed and monitored by qualified nursing staff. We understand that waiting can be frustrating, and our staff will do their best to keep your wait to a minimum and make you comfortable.
In our ED, you will be cared for by trained medical, nursing, support and volunteer staff who will try to ensure your needs are met.
Visiting hours are from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm daily in most wards.
Patient rest period is from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm. During these hours limited visiting only, to be negotiated with staff.\
At the Modbury Hospital you can choose to be admitted as a private patient. Admission as a private patient has benefits for both you and the hospital. For more information, please see Modbury Hospital accounts and charges and attending hospital as a private patient.
