If you require the services of an occupational therapist, a referral will be sent prior to your admission and the therapist may contact you to discuss your home equipment needs (e.g. raised toilet seat, shower stool, etc). For some types of surgery it is strongly recommended that this service is used. There may be a cost involved dependent on your health provider, or if you are paying personally. The occupational therapist can inform you of this.
