Important notes for GPs

  •  There is no Emergency Department at Moorabbin. These patients can be seen at any of the three EDs and transferred if requiring admission.
  • Patients with conditions requiring urgent intervention, such as PCI for Acute Myocardial Infarction, or Thrombolysis for acute stroke, should be sent immediately to MMC, Clayton
  • Orthopaedic patients who can be managed in the Emergency department without inpatient admission; eg Colles’ fracture, simple limb fractures, dislocated shoulders; can be managed at all three EDs, but will be followed up in Outpatients at Dandenong Hospital
  • Orthopaedic patients will not be admitted to Casey Hospital. Those Orthopaedic patients who obviously need inpatient admission should be referred to MMC, Clayton or Dandenong Hospital.
