The Inpatient Physiotherapy serves all referred inpatients and some of the out-patient cases which are not covered by Outpatient Physiotherapy.
Patients who require physiotherapy treatment will be referred by their attending physician. After your doctor refers you to physiotherapy, you will be assessed by a physiotherapist to determine your treatment plan. You may receive your treatment in the ward by the assigned physiotherapist or be brought to the above location to continue with physiotherapy treatment. Once you are discharged from the hospital, you will be given an outpatient appointment at our Outpatient Physiotherapy Centre.
Inpatients will be seen on a by appointment basis. Outpatients who walk in for the first time will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. An appointment date and time will be given for subsequent follow-up visits.
Patients who may require physiotherapy:
To access the service you are required to obtain a referral letter from your doctor recommending you for physiotherapy. To ensure quality service from your physiotherapist, you are encouraged to fix an appointment with your therapist prior to your visit and keep to your appointment date and time.
During your first assessment, you may choose for a male or female therapist. For better progression of your treatment, you are advised to follow one primary therapist. At times when your primary therapist is not available, you will be assigned to another therapist. Rest assured that you will only be attended to by one of our highly qualified and certified physiotherapists at every session.
During the assessment, your therapist may ask you questions related to your condition such as your day to day activities and how you manage your symptoms. You may also need to show the therapist the injured part of your body. Afterwards, your therapist will explain his or her findings and plan of treatment. This includes the frequency of visits, duration, estimated cost and types of treatment.
For safety purposes and to ensure you get a comprehensive explanation prior to your treatment, your therapist will ask you to sign a consent form after he/she explains your condition and plan of treatment.
In the event of absence or defaulted appointment without first informing your therapist for 2 consecutive weeks, you will need to see your doctor to obtain another referral before proceeding with your treatment.
