Bedside entertainment

SA Health has partnered with Telstra to install and support approximately 3,500 bedside computers at the majority of bedsides in South Australian public hospitals to enable doctors, nurses, midwives and other health care professionals to use clinical applications and access patient information at patients’ bedsides.

The computers also provide patients with bedside entertainment services. Bedside computers have now been installed and are fully operational for patient entertainment in 12 hospitals.

Entertainment packages

The bedside entertainment services are provided by Telstra and give patients access to a number of different entertainment options on a pre-paid basis. SA Health has arranged for some exemptions to apply.

The same entertainment packages are offered at each hospital site.

Please refer to the Telstra brochure available at your hospital for package details and prices.
