Edwards, Acting Nursing Unit Manager on Ward 5C/D (Haematology), said:
“On behalf of
staff, patients, their family and friends, I would like to thank Dry Julyers
for their fundraising efforts on behalf of Calvary Mater Newcastle.
Ward Waiting Room was fortunate to benefit from a makeover thanks to Dry
allows patients and their families and friends to have a haven away from the ward.
The new couches and lounge chairs provide comfort for those who need to wait –
whether that is for doctor reviews, investigation results, transport,
outpatient bookings, etc.
“The room also
adds a bit of colour and comfort to our patient’s lives during their stay on the
ward as commonly patients stay in our care for at least a month. The room
presents the opportunity for a change of scenery and some home comforts.
“It is so
lovely to walk past the room and see patients and their carers having the
opportunity to not only relax in a comfortable setting, but also have the chance
to chat with other people going through similar circumstances.
“We thank you
all for your commitment and kindness to help make this makeover happen.”
