The daily routine on Ward 78

Throughout Monday to Friday patients regularly go to and from theatre. Members of our team, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists and dieticians, also visit the ward during the course of the day.  The only exception to this routine is during protected mealtimes and rest periods, when all patients are given the opportunity to rest and no outside visitors are allowed.

A typical day on Ward 78 would be as follows:

6am - 7am: Morning intravenous antibiotics and routine blood tests

7.15am - 7.45am: Nurse hand over

7.45am - 8.15am: Breakfast followed by morning drug round

8am - 10am: Doctors round

11.45am - 12.15pm: Lunchtime drug round
