The Friends are delighted to announce we are funding the REFURBISHMENT OF BATHROOMS ON D WARD at St Luke’s Hospital, Rathgar costing €614,000
Hygiene Audits have been carried out on D Ward on a quarterly basis and it was continuously observed that the standard of the shower and shower trays were not in good condition as per Hygiene Standards. Shower trays were not adequate as water came over the top on to the floor making it a health and safety issue in some areas. Cleaning was difficult due to mould around the edges of the shower tray.Therefore silicone needed replacing on a regular basis.
D Ward comprises of a total 17 single rooms and 3 x 4 bedded wards
It is envisaged to offer patients excellent care while they are being treated in St Luke’s Hospital. In conjunction with this the SLRON Management at St Luke’s Hospital, are committed to ensuring that clean, compliant and comfortable surroundings are provided for patients.
From a patient perspective it was also recommended that D Ward be redecorated with the inclusion of minor modifications to ensure the rooms are HIQA compliant and also to support patient comfort. Some of the recommendations from a recent HIQA proposal are to include a hand hygiene sink in all single rooms. We also intend to introduce grab rails and supports into the showers and to replace the doors to the bedrooms. These modifications will comply with HIQA & Health and Safety recommendations. The above and some redecoration works will improve the overall quality and aesthetics of the Ward.
