There is more to your well-being than just your physical health. Ospedale San Raffaele takes your psychological well-being and overall comfort very seriously. We offer the possibility to every patient and to its family members to benefit from the support of a psychologist throughout the admission. Our psychologist will offer to have confidential meetings with you to discuss your anxieties, worries and expectations connected to your health event and hospitalization. We also proactively manage pain to create a pain-free hospital experience. We will gather your preferences on privacy, staff interaction, consenting to medical procedures and sleep preferences so that everything will feel just right while you are with us.
