Inpatient guide

For your own safety, upon admission you are given a bracelet with your name, case number and attending physician. You must wear it at all times during your stay at IASO. If it is lost or destroyed, tell the nursing staff so they may replace it immediately.

Upon your admission, we will take down your personal medical history. Please tell us about anything that concerns your health, such as allergies to drugs, food or materials, difficulty walking, etc. so we may facilitate your stay at our Hospital and design a personalized care plan.

All the information recorded in your medical record is considered sensitive personal data and is treated as strictly confidential by all Hospital staff.

  • For a safe and comfortable hospitalization
    • Make sure you have understood how the nurse call button works. Otherwise, ask the ward staff for explanations.
    • Your room has autonomous air conditioning, which you can adjust as you wish. Please do not open the windows, as this lowers the performance of the air conditioning system.
    • Do not leave your ward without first notifying the nursing staff. You cannot leave the Hospital at all during your hospitalization.
  • What to bring with you for your hospitalization
    • Personal hygiene items (toothbrush, toothpaste, sponge, comb or hair brush, etc.)
    • Pajamas or nightie, dressing gown

    Make sure you have stored your glasses, hearing aid or dentures safely when you are not using them, so they are not lost.

You should not keep medications in your bedside table, nor take any medications other than those administered by the nursing staff, in consultation with your doctor.
  • Nutrition
    The menus are set in cooperation with the IASO Nutritional Support and Dietetics Department, so that the nutritional needs of patients are fully met. The daily menu is determined by the attending physician and the meals are prepared according to their instructions. Main meals may also be served for the carers in the luxury rooms and the suites. The catering staff are always available to assist you in any way they can.
