The Ten Commanders of the VFN Visitor
- The visitor should behave quietly so as not to disturb other hospitalized patients.
- The visitor should respect the recommendations and instructions of medical personnel, follow their instructions, eg when using shoe covers.
- The visitor should respect the visiting hours that are recommended and differentiated in each department.
- The visitor should adjust the duration and duration of the visit to the patient's state of health.
- The visitor should monitor whether the patient is too tired. If so, tactically shorten the visit.
- The visitor should postpone his visit if he is ill and could infect the patient.
- The visitor should listen to the patient's concerns, try to reassure him, comfort him, raise his self-esteem and motivate him to adhere to the treatment regime and thus contribute to faster release to home treatment.
- If a visitor wants to bring a gift to the patient, he should remember the adequacy and environment in which the patient is located. We recommend that you consult with the nursing staff whether the cut flowers are appropriate, that the food does not interfere with the diet… etc.
- Ideal for the patient is the cooperation between the visit (family member), the nursing staff and the patient himself. Especially when it comes to home treatment, which will require a change in lifestyle, diet, drug use, and so on.
- The visitor should respect the smoking ban on the premises of the General Teaching Hospital in Prague.
