WE’VE GOT ANSWERS!
Yes, you may bring a laboratory order from any doctor or clinic and Kelina Hospital laboratory will conduct the tests for you. Kelina will conduct such tests subject to the understanding that the patient undertakes the responsibility to follow up on the results of the tests with the prescribing doctor or hospital. If the testing indicates an imminent emergency (for example, very high blood pressure or very low blood sugar levels), we reserve the right and duty to initiate treatment at Kelina Hospital in order to stabiliza the patient’s condition.
Yes, you may bring a prescription from another hospital. The Pharmacist on duty will gladly look into filling it for you from our stock. With over a thousand different medications in stock, we usually have most common medications available on a daily basis.
No, not really. Kelina Hospital uses an EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system to store and manage our patients’ medical records. The medical record documents the patient’s medical history, diagnostic procedures, treatment, medications, and health outcomes. The information is securely backed up daily to minimize the likelihood that any information will ever be lost. It is always advisable, however, to arrive at least 15 minutes before a scheduled appointment in order to settle down and relax a bit before meeting with the doctor. Certain vital signs such as your blood pressure may be affected when you rush in and are tested immediately.
Although we receive walk-in patients, setting up an appointment before arrival is generally preferred because this results in the most efficient use of time for the patient as well as for the doctor and hospital staff. To set up an appointment, call the Front Desk at 0803-364-4644. At your discretion, you may request to book an appointment with a specific doctor, or you may choose to be seen by the next available doctor.
Available positions are usually advertised in national daily newspapers, and the adverts provide information on application procedures. You may inquire, however, if a vacancy might be available by sending an email to [email protected] While we do our best to respond to all mails within five business days, unsolicited job enquiries or applications may not receive an immediate response when no relevant vacancy exists.
