Electrical Appliances

Small electrical appliances, such as shavers and hairdryers, may be used in the hospital. However, it is necessary to have these items checked and tagged as electrically safe by a qualified electrician prior to your admission, so please advise nursing staff if you wish to use appliances that have not been checked. Faulty equipment may interfere with the use of vital medical equipment. We do not accept responsibility for damage to, or personal injury from, electrical items bought into the hospital.

Flowers and balloons delivered for patients will be sent to the patient's room when permitted. Due to infection control precautions, live flowers are not permitted in Intensive Care.
