Hospital in the Home

Hospital in the Home is an alternative to an inpatient hospital stay. Patients are still regarded as hospital inpatients and remain under the care of their hospital doctor. Care is provided by nurses, doctors, or allied health professionals, and additional home supports are arranged as required. Patients can be offered this option if care can be delivered safely at home. Participation is voluntary.

Hospital in the Home is a service provided by Castlemaine Health’s District Nursing Service. To find out more, contact our District Nursing Service.
