Staying with us
On the day of admission, come to the reception of our Centre at the arranged hour. You will be received by medical staff. After the formalities (entering your data into computer), they will call a head nurse from your department. She will escort you to your room and give you all the general information and the necessary instruction to prepare for the examination. She will also hand you the room keys, which should be left at the reception during any prolonged absence from the building and when you leave the Centre.
After you accommodate in your room, a doctor will visit you, and following the conversation with you and the review of medical documentation, the doctor will determine the course of necessary tests and examinations. Please, do not leave the room before the doctor visits.
Every day between 8:00 and 9:00 in the morning it is time for rounds, when the doctor comes to your room and explains further course of examination. Please, do not leave your room at this time.
Mandatory presence and leisure time
Please, do not leave the room while waiting for an individual examination. You can spend your free time however you prefer, we only ask that you return to your room by 22:00, when we lock the main door.
Leaving the Centre

After your admission to the unit, you will learn which nurse will be responsible for coordinating your care during your stay. Other nurses will also assist in your care. At the beginning of each shift, expect the nurse who will take care of you, to come to you and present herself, so that you always know whom to call in case of any questions or problems. The head nurse of the inpatient unit is Mili Žumer, and in case of any concerns, you can call her.
In the morning, cleaners will come into your room. They will clean the room and bring new towels and toiletries. If you do not want to be disturbed at that moment, ask them to come to your room later.
