Leave

Hospital Leave
It may be necessary for residents to be transferred to hospital if they require care that Murray House is not able to provide. Residents can take unlimited leave for the purpose of receiving hospital treatment.

Social Leave
Families and friends are encouraged to take residents on outings as often as they wish. Residents/representatives are requested to sign the Resident Leave Register as they leave as this will enable us to determine their whereabouts in an emergency.

Up to fifty-two (52) nights per financial year can be spent away from the facility on overnight leave not exceeding a continuous period of seven (7) days without jeopardising the Residency Agreement. This is in addition to hospital or rehabilitation leave.

If you exceed a continuous period of seven (7) days you will be required to pay the residential fee plus the daily residential care subsidy that would be payable to us under Division 44 of the Act.
