Hurley Ward is a “step down” unit that focuses on rehabilitating older people to enable them to recover, regain strength, skills and function prior to returning home.
Our aim of care is led by patients’ individual needs. A multi-disciplinary team consisting of nurses, health care assistants, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and doctors will work closely with you, your carers and community services to achieve realistic goals. We will endeavour your continued health towards an active life in the community.
The ward consists of 21 beds, including four single rooms with three bays of four beds, and one bay with five beds, offering comfort and security at all times.
Ward visiting hours: Open visiting
Periodically throughout these hours nurses will be completing essential drug dispensing rounds during which we ask they not be disturbed.
Visitors allowed: 2 visitors per patient
