Andrew Ward

Andrew Ward is a Discharge to Assess/Rehabilitation Unit. You have been admitted to us following a stay within an acute hospital.

We can support up to 24 male and female patients. You will be allocated a suitable bed upon arrival to the ward.

We are a nurse led unit supported by our ward doctor who works Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Other staff, including occupational therapy, physiotherapy, social care assessors, discharge liaison nurses and discharge support officers, are available to support you. This team may be referred to as the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT).

We will endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible. During your stay:

  • the nurses and healthcare assistants will support and help you with your care needs.
  • the ward doctor will review you on arrival to the ward but will only see you again if necessary.
  • the therapy team will see you and work with you to try and meet your goals if necessary. 
  • the housekeeper and patient experience facilitator will try to ensure that your stay is as pleasant as possible. They will involve you in activities on the ward, which can be catered to you. Please speak to the nurse in charge for further information.


When is visiting time?

We offer visiting from 11am until 8pm. However we are closed to visiting throughout mealtimes which are Midday to 1pm and 5pm to 6pm.
 

What do I need on Andrew Ward?

We encourage all patients to wear day clothes throughout the day, rather than nightwear. Please ask a relative or friend to bring in some day clothes, nightwear and toiletries if possible.

We encourage you to not keep valuables on the ward. If you would like anything placing in our safe please let a staff member know and they will be happy to help. 


How long will I stay on Andrew Ward?

We aim to keep your stay in hospital as short as possible. Every patient’s needs are different and therefore their length of stay will vary. We will give you an approximate discharge date when you arrive and we will do our best to try and meet that date.

How long you stay also depends on your needs following your discharge from hospital e.g. if you need further therapy support, or if extra help and support is needed for you on discharge e.g. a package of care or a place in a care/residential home following the necessary assessments.

While you are on Andrew Ward:

  • the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) will assess your long-term care needs and arrange any extra help or support at home before you leave.
  • the nurses will ensure your discharge letter is completed and complete any relevant referrals required on discharge e.g. district nurse referrals.
  • the nurses will ensure you have 14 days’ worth of medication to take with you.
     

Arranging your transport home

If a friend or relative is unable to collect you from hospital, we are happy to help arrange hospital transport with you. We will try to ensure that you are discharged on time, however all bookings and times are estimated.
