Gold Coast Private is the only private hospital in Queensland that provides acute medical care in the home. Hospital in the Home (HITH) is the provision of a safe, effective and efficient alternative to in-hospital care for eligible patients. The outreach program covers patients who would otherwise be in hospital, but now have the resources to be treated in their home.

HITH is a stand-alone unit of Gold Coast Private that ensures you maintain confidence and independence within a flexible service that meets your needs. 'Home' is defined as the patient’s usual or temporary place of residence i.e. their home or an aged-care facility.

HITH staff work in consultation with you and your carer. Your medical specialist and the nursing staff will assess your suitability to participate in the program.

Your individual care requirements are planned in consultation with you, your doctor and the nursing staff. You will be visited by Gold Coast Private nursing staff daily and your treatment will continue as it would in hospital. Your condition will be closely monitored and any changes receive immediate attention.

Contact:

The HITH staff are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide you with care and advice.

They can be contacted by calling 0400 813 312 and asking to speak with the HITH coordinator.

Assistance available through the HITH program includes:

  • Intravenous antibiotics
  • Advanced wound management
  • Specialised medication management (eg. selected chemotherapy, anticoagulants)
  • Coordination of medical equipment

HITH is part of your hospital stay and will be billed to your health fund.

The Gold Coast Private Hospital offers a complimentary Preadmission Care Centre service to prepare patients for surgery. The purpose of the preadmission appointment is to streamline your admission and identify concerns that may impact on your recovery. Your surgeon may ask you to attend an appointment or the preadmission nurses may contact you to make an appointment. The nurses can liaise with our allied health team such as rehabilitation, physiotherapy and discharge planning should you require those services. Please allow up to 45 minutes for your appointment.

The preadmission nurses may make arrangements for a telephone interview due to inability of the patient to attend in person.

Your appointment may include:

  • A comprehensive nursing assessment
  • ECG, blood pressure, temperature
  • Education relating to your procedure
  • Discharge planning and equipment hire
  • Completion of admission forms
  • Blood test and x-ray as ordered by your surgeon
