During your stay in hospital, you are cared for by a team of health professionals and support staff.

Every patient is cared for by a team of health professionals including doctors, nurses and allied health staff, and other support staff such as clerical, catering and cleaning staff.

All staff must wear photographic identity badges that include their name and job title.

Teaching and research

The RMH is a university (tertiary) teaching hospital with a long and proud commitment to providing quality educational experiences for our future health care providers. We work closely with the universities that train health professionals.

You may be asked if you would be willing to let a student examine you or ask you some questions.

You may also be invited to participate in one of the hospital’s research projects. If you agree, all information you provide will remain strictly confidential.

You are under no obligation to participate in either teaching or research. Feel free to refuse, but we hope you will agree as your participation is an important contribution towards students' education and an investment in everyone's future health care.

Whether you agree or refuse, it will have no effect on the treatment and care you receive.

Who does what?

Here's a brief description of what each person does. If you want to know more, ask the ward staff.
