On admission and after delivery, every attempt will be made to
accommodate you in the type of room you prefer; however this may
not always be possible. Although patients may request for a private
room, any specific room assignment is subject to availability.
There are a number of factors that determine each patient's room
assignment, in particular the number of beds available and the need
for some patients to receive special medical care. Single rooms
will only be considered following delivery.
The Royal and VIP Services Team Leader is usually responsible
for the allocation of VIP Suites. The Obstetric Services
Coordinator and the Ward Senior Charge Midwife are responsible for
the allocation of the single room if available. Specific care is
provided on certain wards and therefore patients must be
accommodated on those wards. Patients with specific care needs will
be cared for in an environment specific to those needs.
