Life Healthcare is committed to good corporate citizenship. Flora Clinic`s participation in Life Healthcare`s Community Involvement Process (CIP) and a host of similar initiatives by the group`s other hospitals and associated companies bears testimony to this commitment. At local level through various collaborative efforts, our employees seek to put something back into the communities in which they operate. Our CIP initiatives are part and parcel of Life Healthcare`s current 39 long-term projects.

Life Healthcare initiated its Community Involvement Process in 1995 with management and employees actively participating in both ongoing projects and the annual, national Bumbanani Day celebrations.

Patient and visitor information

Accommodation at our Clinic is extensive and includes:

* Day beds
* Private wards
* General wards
* High care units

We also offer TVs in all of our wards.

Private wards are all en-suite.

Our admission process can be made much easier for you, if the following simple guidelines are followed.

* Medical aid patients should check with their medical aid / scheme prior to admission to obtain pre-authorisation, if deemed necessary by the medical aid / scheme.
* Patients have to present their medical aid card and identity document on admission. Persons under the age of 18 have to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
* To speed up admission, a pre-admission form is available from the resident doctor`s rooms and the hospital`s reception, and should be either handed through to the hospital`s reception or faxed through to the clinic prior to admission.
* Also refer to the “Tariffs” and “Discharge” sections below, for more information on prepayment and payment procedures.

A parent or legal guardian must accompany all patients under 18 years.

Mothers or fathers whose children are admitted as patients are welcome to stay at their bedside at all times.

Day patients undergoing surgery under anaesthetic should arrange for transport from hospital – it is illegal to drive for 24 hours following anaesthetic.

All private patients (i.e. patients not covered by medical aid) will be expected to settle their accounts in full on discharge.

Public Relations Manager
Our public relations manager serves as a link between the hospital, patients, doctors and staff. Should you need any assistance please contact the manager at the reception desk of our hospital or on 011 470 7925. If you are from out of town, the PR manager and reception desk has a list of accommodation near the hospital for family members.

Service monitoring
In keeping with our goal to continue providing high quality care, we monitor our service to patients on an ongoing basis. On discharge patients are asked to complete a questionnaire regarding their stay in hospital. Participation is voluntary, but it does assist management in addressing any problems and improving our service. We especially welcome any suggestions you may have.

Flora Clinic charges medical aid tariffs, i.e. contracted in fees. Patients requesting a private room will be required to pay a surcharge. A deposit will be required from private patients on admission – private patients can contact our accounts department for more information.

Visiting hours
We welcome all of our patients` visitors, as we know what a difference the support of close family and friends can make.

In light of this, we also have to be aware of the rest that all of our patients require and we have thus provided for visitors to visit our hospitals only at certain designated times and these are:

* 11:00 – 12:00 (designated wards only)
* 15:00 – 16:00
* 19:00 – 20:00

Further to this, other rules apply with respect to visitors and these are:

* Visitors are restricted to three per patient at a time. Children are welcome but they must have an adult supervising them. Adult supervision is not required in the children`s ward.
* In the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), we only allow two family members per patient.
* In the High Care wards, two visitors per patient are allowed
