Are you worried about a relative or friend who is in hospital? - Content

As a family member or carer, you may identify signs of clinical deterioration that others may not notice, because:

  •  the patient is well known to you and you know their usual characteristics, allowing subtle changes or signs of deterioration to be identified by you, potentially before being identified by the healthcare team
  • you may be spending large amounts of time with the patient, which means you may notice a change in the patient when healthcare workers are not present

Eastern Health believes in partnering with patients, families and carers in delivery of health care.

If you are worried, there is a three-step process you can follow to raise your concerns. Click here to download the flyer containing instructions.
