Irish Healthcare Awards – Winner!

“Please doctor, can I have some darkness?”.

Congratulations to Dr Justine Jordan and all the team at SVUH Emergency Department involved in this project which won “NCHD Project of the Year” and “An Duais Mhór” at the Irish Healthcare Awards 2017.

As part of this project our aim was to try and reduce some patient stressors in our ED by providing patients with a “Comfort Pack” which included eye mask, ear plugs, face wipe, toothbrush & grip socks. During the study period, the packs were distributed to patients who were in SVUH ED overnight.
