Medication Safety

Please bring with you all of your current medicines and prescribed dosage of each in the original labelled container (not in a dosette/Webster pack) in their original labelled container.

Tell the doctor and nurse/midwife about any natural therapies and over the counter medicines you take.

It is important that while in hospital you receive your normal medications. If your medications are changed your doctor or nurse/midwife will inform you.

Please ASK your doctor, nurse, midwife or pharmacist if you are unsure of any of the following:

  • You are not receiving the same medication you take at home.
  • You have been prescribed any new or different medications.
  • You have concerns or you are worried about your medications.
