Your hospital room

Room accommodation

While we endeavor to provide the type of room you have requested, we can not guarantee availability as beds are allocated on the morning of your admission based on clinical decisions. You will be charged for the room that you occupy regardless of your accommodation preference. Workers’ Compensation patients are provided with shared room accommodation.


Your room

Call bell

Each bedside has a handset that operates both as a call bell for nursing assistance and a switch for your over bed light. Call bells are also located in the bathroom next to the shower and next to the toilet. Your nurse will advise you how to use the call bell.

Internet access

WiFi is available throughout the hospital. To use the hospital WiFi, log in as UCH_Guest on your electronic device.

Television

Each bed is equipped with a television for patient use. In addition to regular free-to-air programming, cable channels and digital radio stations are also available. Television controls can be found on your call bell handset. Please be mindful of the volume and wear headphones if you are sharing a room. A TV guide is available below.

Newspaper and magazines

Reading materials including newspapers and magazines can be purchased from espresso@thewesley in the hospital foyer or from the ward volunteer’s trolley each day. Over the weekend, newspapers can also be purchased in the Gown and Glove Restaurant on Level 1. There is a limited supply of newspapers sold in the Gown and Glove Restaurant after 10am on week days.

The Wesley Hospital Auxiliary trolley service

The trolley visits each ward Monday to Thursday mornings. The trolley carries chocolates, chips, sweets, basic toiletries, tissues, cards, notebooks and puzzle books - all for the patient’s convenience, with funds going towards the Auxiliary's fundraising efforts for the hospital. Payments can be made via cash only. 

Mail Delivery / Posting

Mail is distributed to hospital wards Monday to Friday. Mail may be posted in the post box located on Level 2 outside the main entrance. Postage stamps are available for purchase at the Florist on Level 2.

Telephone enquiries from family and friends

All general ward beds have a telephone which you can use to make local, STD and ISD
calls. All calls are metered and will be charged to your credit card if not covered by
your health insurance

 If you are an inpatient we recommend that your family and friends do not telephone until mid morning to allow routine patient care activities to be undertaken. We also suggest that you designate a family member to be the central point of call to keep your family and friends informed of your progress.

All telephone enquiries should be directed to the hospital switchboard on (07) 3232 7000.
