The Surgical Ward is an 18-bed unit that provides care to pre and post-operative patients. We also provide care to general medical and surgical patients who do not require a procedure. ERH offers elective surgery and also provides emergency surgical services out of hours. We will facilitate transfer to an appropriate facility if we are unable to meet a patient’s emergency care needs.
Surgical specialties include:
• General & Laparoscopic surgery
Our experienced and dedicated team will always try to make sure that every person staying with us is as comfortable as possible and receives the highest quality care. During their stay, we encourage patients to talk openly and freely about their care, likes and dislikes, and to ask as many questions as they wish.
We will engage with our Allied Health team (such as Physiotherapy, Dietetics, Occupational Therapy) and other health professionals (such as Diabetes Educator, Stomal Therapist, Wound Nurse) to provide care that meets the individual needs of our patients.
In our work environment we expect everyone including patients, family, visitors and staff are treated with respect and dignity.
“We must build a new world a far better world – one in which the eternal dignity of man is respected” Harry S Truman
We advise that patients bring in their current medications and scripts.
Toiletries & clothing:
Patients need to bring clothing and toiletries that they may need during their stay.
Echuca Regional Health accepts no responsibility for valuables. Please have a family member take such items home or ask a staff member to have them locked up securely.
Echuca Regional Health will not tolerate violence, physical or verbal aggression, towards any person including staff. If this occurs, the police will be called and legal action may be taken.
Clients may elect to use their private health insurance.
