We believe that our hospital is the resident's home and hospital level care in a residential setting requires special personal qualities, skills and knowledge.
The Nurse Maude Hospital is a safe and compassionate environment; one where specialist palliative care and support is provided free of charge to our residents and their families.
Hospital level care is based on recommendations of a needs assessor from Older Persons Health Specialist Services and people can be referred by their doctor, public hospital or other health professional.
Long term care is funded by the Ministry of Health and intending patients have their needs, income and assets assessed before admission.
Patients can be attended by their own doctor or choose to have the hospital's doctor look after them and can be referred by their doctor, public hospital or health professional.
Short-term care can also be provided, subject to bed availability, for up to 28 days under the Respite Care Scheme. This can be extended on assessment and is also available for those who wish to pay privately.
To discuss this, and any other queries you may have about being cared for in the Nurse Maude Hospital please call us and ask for the hospital manager.
