Hospital in the Home services

Hospital in the Home (HITH) is care service provided to patients in their own home, or outside hospital. Patients are still treated as a 'hospital' patient and are still treated by their hospital doctor. The medical or healthcare professionals caring for the patient include nurses, doctors and allied health professionals.

Patients may be offered the choice to be cared for outside of hospital if their treating medical team believes they can be treated safely at home.

Not all public or private hospitals, provide 'Hospital in the Home '.
