About Hospital in the Home
Experience the quality of care you’d expect in an Epworth hospital in the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
Services include administration of intravenous therapies (including antibiotics, antivirals, fluids, steroids and prevention of blood clots), blood transfusions and other blood products, pain relief and complex wound care.
Sometimes this means you can leave hospital early. In other cases, you may not need to come to hospital at all, although you are still an ‘admitted patient’.
Services are delivered by a team of Epworth doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.
You need to be referred by your GP or treating doctor.
