It is possible that when you leave the Royal Adelaide Hospital, you will take home medical equipment to assist you in managing your health independently at home.
Our staff will determine what equipment you will require when you leave hospital, and will help you organise where to obtain it upon discharge.
This may include special or complex equipment such as crutches, a commode chair or oxygen therapy equipment.
You will also be given instructions on how to properly and safely use your discharge equipment.
We will ensure you are involved in your discharge plan and that your questions are answered.
