    Bringing food for patients

    We understand some patients prefer their own food. Please note we do not take responsibility for food that is brought in by visitors for patients. We ask visitors who wish to bring food for patients to choose low risk food and check with staff before giving it to their patient. Due to their health condition, some patients may become very unwell if they eat the wrong food at the wrong time.

    Your appointment (outpatients)

    Your outpatient appointment is to see a specialist or clinician about your condition without being admitted into hospital. You may have an outpatient appointment before and/or after your admission to hospital.

    Appropriate behaviour

    We are committed to protecting the safety and wellbeing of our patients, visitors and staff. We promote a safe and comfortable environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. We remind everyone that Queensland Health has a policy of zero tolerance to violence.  The following inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated:

    • aggressive, abusive and threatening
    • physical or verbal attacks
    • obscene, racist, sexist or demeaning language

    Our security guards are available 24/7. In circumstances when our staff respond to violence, they do so from a legal and ethical framework. You are encouraged to report all incidents including concerns regarding staff conduct.

    Bringing flowers to patients

    Flowers and potted plants are a lovely gift for patients. For patient safety reasons, we cannot allow flowers or potted plants in the Intensive Care Unit or near patients with respiratory issues.

    Hand hygiene

    Clean hands help prevent infection. To reduce the risk and spread of infections, we ask you, your visitors and staff to keep their hands clean. It is okay to use the hand gel or the basins to clean hands. Please ask your family and friends not to visit if they are sick. Find out how you can protect yourself and your loved ones by hand washing for hygiene.

    Smoke free hospital

    Smoking is not permitted on the hospital grounds. The Queensland Tobacco Laws ban smoking at hospitals and on campus grounds within 5 metres of its boundary. If you are a patient who smokes and want to give up, we can help you with free Nicotine Replacement Therapy or alternatives. Please ask your clinical staff for advice on treatment or phone the anonymous and confidential QUITLINE service on 131 848. We strongly advise that you do not leave the ward area to smoke. Leaving the ward is at your own risk and against the advice of your medical team. Hospital equipment must not be taken off hospital grounds. If you have an intravenous drip, under no circumstances are you to leave the building for the purpose of smoking. In no event or circumstances shall Queensland Health be liable for any injury, harm or damages incurred by you choosing to exit the hospital buildings and/or grounds for the purposes of smoking.
