Instructions to relatives
Instructions for visitors
Patients are often brought to the hospital by a family member, but sometimes it may be necessary for them to also attend the consultation with the doctor. In Heart Hospital, an outpatient clinic visit involves counselling about treatment and medication. Often there is so much new information that the patient doesn’t think about asking questions until later. The patient’s close relatives are therefore very welcome to attend the consultation if the patient is happy to allow it.
Information about hospital visits and enquiring about the patient’s condition
A relative can enquire about the patient’s condition in the department where they are being looked after. If you don’t know the ward, you can call Heart Hospital via the switchboard. Tel: +358 3 311 716 (switch)
Heart Hospital wards
Most of the wards have unrestricted visiting hours. Relatives are requested to visit the patient during the afternoon or evening, however, because the treatments and investigations take place in the morning or mid-day. Ward staff is happy to provide information on the visiting hours.
