The acute ward at the Warracknabeal campus is a 12-bed general ward staffed by registered and enrolled nurses with either advanced or basic life support qualifications while Hopetoun’s is a four-bed general ward.
After hours there is the added support of an on-call Medical roster that includes two doctors and a nurse practitioner in Warracknabeal who are also on call for Hopetoun.
We provide medical care, palliative care, rehabilitation and post-operative care as well as a triage bay to care for more serious conditions/accidents awaiting transfers to hospitals at bigger centres. Warracknabeal also has a nurse led after-hours limited x-ray service.
We are able to provide treatments and monitoring for conditions such as heart problems, breathing problems, burns, infections, allergies, motor vehicles accidents, fractures, psychiatric crisis and more.
