General Information

Patient & Caregiver Training

To better meet your and your caregivers’ needs, HYGEIA has incorporated training by the healthcare professionals treating you to the services it offers.

It includes whatever you may need to know so as to handle any issues that may arise.

More specifically:

  • Safe use of medication

  • Possible interactions between your medications and certain foods
  • Nutritional advice
  • Pain management
  • Rehabilitation techniques

Prevention & Infection Control

HYGEIA Hospital implements an Infections Control Program, in accordance with the international regulations for the control of hospital infections or community infections in general.
There are specific actions we recommend you follow as a patient, so as to limit the risk of an infection during your hospitalization:

  • Hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of germs and infections, in and out of hospital. It is extremely important to wash your hands before and after using the bathroom.
  • Depending on the medical procedure or treatment you are about to undergo, you may be asked to wash your hands with antibacterial soap to limit the risk of infections.
  • If your friends, relatives or family manifest any symptoms of infection (such as coughing, sneezing, diarrhea or suffer from an infectious disease) ask them not to visit you.
  • Do not sit on other patients’ beds and do not allow your visitors to sit on your bed.
  • For your own safety, please limit the number of visitors.
