Internal Medicine

Introduction

Internal Medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and non-surgical treatments of diseases in adults, with approx 3000 admissions each year via the Emergency Department. This fully acute service manages patients who are not specifically being managed by a specialty service, or who have multiple medical problems.
Eighty-five percent of acute stroke presentations to Dunedin Hospital are also admitted to Internal Medicine. All are admitted to the Acute Stroke Unit (ASU)

The Internal Medicine Team consists of medical staff, charge nurse managers, nurses, a service educator, ward receptionists, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech language therapists.
