Mr Nojoko

This is a rehab hospital but I see it as a home for many reasons: Warmth, Care, Love, Discipline, Dedication and Commitment.”

The Meyer Family

“To each and every beautiful soul that has diligently helped and supported our family with the recovery process, we would just like to say thank you. Thank you for your nurture, your caring and your compassion. We are truly deeply touched and words cannot express our gratitude.”

Mev. Rabie

Ná my knievervanging het ek besluit om na die Cape View-hospitaal te gaan vir ‘n herstelperiode van 10 dae. Ek was beÏndruk met die skoon plek. Al die personeel – van die sekuriteitswag tot die skoonmakers –  was simpatiek en altyd behulpsaam. Die kombuispersoneel was uitstekend met hul smaaklike kos. Die verpleegpersoneel was professioneel en behulpsaam. Die fisioterapeut, Shamaaze, en die arbeidsterapeut, Melanie, was behulpsaam en simpatiek. Ek sal die hospitaal aanbeveel.”

Mrs Rachel Dyers & Family

“We would like to thank all the staff and Doctors for the many acts of caring and kindness. We would like to express our gratitude towards everyone!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Nurture Cape View Hospital accepts all medical aids. We have partnered with the Road Accident Fund and COID, and also accept patients who have been injured whilst at work (injury on duty.)

Our doctors and therapists charge Medical Aid Scheme Scale of Benefits rates. If you are a member of a full medical scheme, your costs will be covered. If you are on a medical plan with limits or co-payment penalties, our case managers will assist you with navigating applications and authorisations. They will help you determine exactly what is covered by your medical scheme and may make credit arrangements if you are not covered.

A copy of your medical aid card and ID will be required upon admission. We are able to make copies for you onsite.

You’ll need comfortable clothes for your daily physical rehabilitation sessions and pyjamas for the evenings. You may bring your cell phone with you, as long as it is switched off in therapy sessions. Don’t forget your books, magazines and anything that makes you feel more at home. Pictures, posters and even personal bedding can make you more comfortable. Remember to also bring your own toiletries, dentures and hearing aids.

If you take chronic medication, bring it with you as the medical aid won’t cover the costs when you’re in the hospital. The sisters in charge will gladly store and dispense these for you.

All meals will be served by Nurture Cape View, therefore we request that you do not supplement your diet without speaking to the doctor or the Sister-in-Charge.  Sweets, snacks or junk food may seriously compromise your recovery. Wherever possible, meals will be served in the dining room.  We sometimes request that families are present to learn how to help patients.

Flexible Visiting Hours: 8am – 8pm

Friends and family bring joy and laughter. Hours are determined by your therapy schedule and you can have up to three visitors at a time. Rest is an important aspect of your recovery and all visitors are kindly asked to leave at 8pm, so that there is time for patients to wind down and prepare for the night.

Your right to privacy is of primary importance to us.  All information disclosed to staff members remains highly confidential.  Information regarding a specific patient may only be disclosed with the formal consent of the patient or in certain situations, the patient’s family.
