Hospital Liaison

If you are a RDNS client in hospital or if you will be needing RDNS services when you go home, one of our District Nurse – Liaisons can work with hospital staff to make sure your transition goes smoothly. They are based in the many public Melbourne hospitals and act as a link between hospital and home so you won’t be on your own.

Our District Nurse – Liaison team can assist you by:

  • identifying that you might benefit from RDNS services when you leave hospital
  • making sure that the RDNS nurses looking after you have the information and equipment they need to help you meet your healthcare goals
  • assessing your needs while you are in hospital so that suitable plans can be made for your discharge
  • helping to plan your ongoing healthcare requirements with the hospital, you and your carers and other community service providers and
  • facilitating information sharing between your home and the hospital.

How can I access this service?

If you are an RDNS client going into hospital, ask your primary nurse to talk with the District Nurse – Liaison. If you’re in hospital, ask the hospital staff to arrange for the District Nurse – Liaison to visit you and the ward staff.

For more information, call us on 1300 33 44 55 and speak to one of our qualified staff. This line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
