The Rehabilitation Complex at Tuen Mun Hospital is reconstructed from the existing staff quarters and provides diversified public rehabilitation services. Relevant patients can also receive comprehensive rehabilitation services at the “original” location of the emergency hospital, without the need for a transfer to a rehabilitation hospital.
The Rehabilitation Complex mainly receives patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, pulmonary dysfunction, hip joint replacement, etc. After staying in the emergency ward, if the patient’s condition becomes stable, they will be transferred to the Rehabilitation Complex. In the event of a sudden deterioration of the patient’s condition during the hospitalization, they can still be promptly sent from the Rehabilitation Complex to the emergency hospital for treatment.
There is a pedestrian footbridge connecting the Rehabilitation Complex with the Day Treatment Center, establishing a close “Rehabilitation Network.” The Day Treatment Center provides services such as family medicine specialty clinics, surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urology, thoracic surgery, occupational medical care services, neurosurgery, otolaryngology (ENT), pediatrics and adolescent medicine, internal medicine and geriatrics, orthopedics and traumatology (orthopedics), obstetrics and gynecology.
Patients should bring their personal daily necessities, such as a cup for rinsing, toothbrush, towel, tissue paper, wet wipes, soap, slippers, etc.
In addition, patients need to bring their Hong Kong identity card or passport and the admission paper for registration. For non-adult Hong Kong residents or individuals who are civil servants or receiving public assistance, you can click here for more information.
Upon arrival at the Emergency Department, experienced and specially trained nurses will conduct an initial assessment of the patient’s condition. The triage nurse will categorize patients into 5 levels:
Patients categorized as critical will receive immediate medical attention without further waiting. Non-urgent patients may have to wait for a longer time. Based on data from July 18, 2019, at 11:15 PM, the reference waiting time at Tuen Mun Hospital exceeded 3 hours. You can click here to check the latest waiting time.
Yes, you can. If you are already receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA), you only need to inform the staff during registration for medical consultation, and provide proof of your identity. After the staff’s verification, you will be exempted from public healthcare service charges.
If you are not receiving CSSA, you can still apply for fee reduction in public hospitals and clinics, Samaritan Fund, and Community Care Fund Medical Assistance Program, subject to meeting specific eligibility criteria and passing the financial assessment.
