Acute Care

GREAT ACUTE CARE

Clients presenting with acute, short term conditions that require hospitalisation can be admitted to Otway Health’s Acute Care Unit.

This unit is located in the Barham Wing, and is attended by approved visiting medical officers, nurse practitioners and associated medical staff.

HOW IT WORKS

Acute Care is offered (depending on bed availability) to all residents and visitors to the Otway Health catchment area. The medical team will assess the client and discuss planned admissions with nursing staff to ensure a bed is available and appropriate care can be provided.
