Referrals & Admissions
Admissions to the Helen McArdle Wing are arranged following referrals through medical and nursing staff, from hospital or home.
Each patient admitted, will receive an assessment.
There is always a qualified Registered General Nurse on duty as well as a Health Care Assistant. Following admission the nurse will spend some time with you and your relatives, should you wish, in order to complete a comprehensive assessments. This will help us to understand you health, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social needs, in order to develop and agree a care plan which addresses all of your care needs, wishes and requests.
It is important to us that we support and enable you to make decisions to remain as independent as possible. Part of our assessment process includes considering the needs of the immediate carers and close family so we will talk to them too.
