After your admission to the hospital, you and/or your legally responsible person will meet with a treatment team, which will consist of your physician, psychologist, social worker, nurse, and other personnel involved in your direct treatment. During the course of this meeting an individual treatment plan, designed to meet your needs, is developed.
If your physical examination indicates a need for medical treatment, this is discussed with you. You and/or your legally responsible person will decide whether to proceed with necessary medical treatment. Broughton Hospital provides medical consultants for specialized needs.
You and/or your legally responsible person are encouraged and expected to participate in decisions regarding your treatment and provide as much information as possible regarding both your physical and mental condition.
If you have questions regarding your treatment, contact the nurse on your ward.
The staff of Broughton Hospital are here to ensure that you receive the best care possible. You can identify staff members by the identification badges they wear, which display their name, photo and department. If anyone without an identification badge approaches you, please request that he or she display his or her badge.
