Yishun care: The Yishun Community Hospital

The Yishun Community Hospital:

Yishun Community Hospital is one of Singapore’s largest community hospitals to provide intermediate care for recuperating patients who do not require the intensive services of an acute-care hospital. Situated beside Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, the two hospitals bring about an integrated care experience for patients, through a network of healthcare teams, information flow and treatment plans.

 

Inpatient Services:

The team of clinicians at the Yishun Community Hospital is committed to providing our patients a high level of care. Comprising rehabilitation, sub-acute (non emergency), dementia and palliative care, our clinicians focuses on the best possible outcome for our patients.

NUTRITION AND DIETETICS:

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.

Balanced and nutritious food is a very important component of treatment. As part of the clinical team, our dietitians assess your nutritional needs and recommend appropriate diets. Our dietitians work very closely with our chefs to provide meals that meet your needs and optimize your quality of life. We are committed to ensure that you are prepared to go back to the community by providing dietary advice.

Services are conducted in individual or group sessions. Topics include healthy diets, nutritional management of medical conditions and hands-on food preparation.

Services are charged separately and vary depending on your condition.

PHARMACY:

Pharmacy aims to provide timely and cost-effective pharmaceutical care through remote and virtual care that is holistic and of high standards to our patients and customers from their and their carer’s perspectives. We will provide seamless care through the continuum of care and integrate our patients back into the community.

We provide patient centered care through interviewing and engaging our patients and their caregivers during medication reconciliation. We set pharmacotherapy goals for individual patients. For selected groups of rehabilitative patients, we assess their abilities to self administer their medications during their stay in the hospital. We provide all patients with their personalised Patient Medication List and we use the list to educate and empower them and/or their caregivers on the names, indications and common side effects of their medications.
