The Bendigo Health Hospital in the Home (HITH) program provides individualised and holistic care in a patient’s home that would otherwise be provided in an acute hospital setting as per the Victorian Hospital Admission Policy allowing patients to receive ongoing treatment in the familiar surroundings of their own home.
Examples of Care provided by HITH:
Each patient is individually assessed to determine their needs and a plan of care is co-ordinated in consultation with a team of health professionals. HITH patients are considered to be inpatients at Bendigo Health.
There is no cost to receive hospital treatment at home. HITH is a voluntary admission.
The care a patient receives whilst on HITH will include all the planned medical care, treatments & investigations (HITH patients are considered inpatients for the entirety of their HITH admission).
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
