Why Mediclinic Medforum ?
Mediclinic Medforum, a multidisciplinary medical facility, is conveniently situated close to all main access routes to the Pretoria city centre. Mediclinic Medforum was the first hospital in Pretoria to open a cardio-thoracic unit. The hospital offers patients a broad spectrum of professional medical services and impeccable nursing care provided by a highly skilled personnel corps.
SPECIALISED NURSING UNITS
The 24-hr emergency centre is constantly manned by experienced medical doctors and registered nurses. We make use of the international triage system and each patient will be triaged and seen by the doctor accordingly. The unit endeavours to incorporate the patient’s general practitioner in the further treatment of the patient.
The uniqueness of this unit (the first of its kind in Pretoria) lies therein that all our facilities – specialised examinations such as gastroscopies, colonoscopies, placing of stents, sclerotherapy, enteroscopies, sfincterotomies, polipectomies, defeacogrammes and cauterisations – are centralised within one unit. As a specialised unit, we offer the services of a dietician that consults our patients (as needed) after their procedure, in order to develop a therapeutic dietary plan as per their individual requirements.
NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
This highly specialised neonatal unit, which provides a comprehensive infrastructure of specialists, boasts specialised equipment such as ventilators, oscillators, CPAP drivers, blood gas analysis machines and is registered to operate a Nitrix Oxide machine. A dedicated clinical facilitator assists in the training and development of staff working in the unit ensuring that personnel retain highly specialised and updated skill levels and expertise. Speech therapists, provided in conjunction with the University of Pretoria’s Support Care learning programme, are especially involved in the development of neonate’s in teaching the babies with underdeveloped abilities how to suck properly on a bottle. The unit supports “Kangaroo Mother Care” and has a holistic approach to parental involvement regarding the care of their babies. Parents are welcome in the unit at any time and participation in the development of their child is encouraged. Much emphasis is also placed on creating a comfortable and caring environment for both parents and neonates and therefore we have strict requirements regarding noise levels within the unit, as well as light control.
PUEPERIUM (POST-NATAL) UNIT
The Puerperium Unit encourages “rooming-in” to allow adequate bonding therefore the birthing partner is not restricted to visiting hours, but allowed anytime until 20:00. With 6 private rooms available upon request, the Puerperium Unit is dedicated to nursing care of the highest quality. We realise that the bond between mother and baby is established directly after birth and the unit, together with the World Health Organisation (WHO) are proud supporters of breast-feeding. Any mother’s wish not to breastfeed her baby however, is respected.
