Royal Free Private Patients Unit opens new state of the art ward
Senior members of the Royal Free Hospital including PPU director Mrs Frances Campion-Smith and Chief Executive Sir David Sloman were present to unveil the new ward which will be home to Haematology, Oncology and Immunocompromised patients.
The ward is equipped with state of the art facilities and has the latest bed functionality equipment to provide patients with the level of care and comfort they need whilst on the road to recovery.
Boasting 8 rooms – 4 of which are fully equipped with the appropriate ventilation systems to cater for immunocompromised patients, the ward also offers 2 rooms with wifi monitored beds for cardiac patients under observation. This will mean patients are not limited to their beds whilst under observation, but instead will be able to move freely without having to worry about monitor recordings being interrupted.
These beds will also be used for clinical research and clinical trials.
Senior Charge Nurse Artwell Cheneka said “I am delighted about the opening of our new ward; its state of the art multi-purpose facilities will allow us to offer a range of services and the best care possible to immunocompromised patients, as well as undergo important research through clinical trials.”
