Ward 7B is a 32 bed ward providing cancer services at The Royal Melbourne Hospital.
On behalf of the staff and patients at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, we just wish to say a huge thank you for your support for Ward 7B in the 2017 Dry July campaign. We were absolutely thrilled to receive these funds and have attached below some feedback from the ward.
Couches: Thank you for your support in gathering funds to support our patients, families and ward environment. The couches for the patients' family room will provide seating for patients and families at the end of the corridor where there is a view over Parkville and the family room for time out for patients. This will create a lovely space on the ward.
Clocks: The clocks were recommended to us by a patient. The ones that were purchased are different in each of the rooms and silent. The patients are very happy with this as they can often minimum of 3 weeks as an inpatient in their rooms.
Sit Stand desk: The sit stand desk is to support patients who are receiving treatment and working. It is a table that can be adjusted as a work station and is easy to clean so other patients can use. It fits a small computer or laptop.
Recliners: The recliners have provided so much comfort and support for patients. These a designed to also reduce pressure injuries. Patients when they are unwell, are able to still sit out of bed in these chairs and can easily be transferred back to bed.
Your support and commitment to The Royal Melbourne Hospital is so invaluable to us and we thank you again! We look forward to updating you again in due course.
