Inpatient care

We also provide Inpatient care (for patients who need to stay in hospital overnight).

Our ward is a 34-bedded centre, treating both male and female patients of all age groups from Yorkshire, Humberside and beyond.

The ward is divided into four teams. Each team has a Senior Nurse, a team of Staff Nurses and Healthcare Assistants. The ward consists of a 2-bedded high observation area, six 4-bedded bays and eight single side rooms. Each bay and side room has an en suite toilet and shower room.The wards have more patient comforts such as electric height adjustable ‘profile beds’ and specialist hoists for safely lifting and transporting patients with spinal cord injuries.

There may be occasions when we have to move patients to a different bed space on the ward. We try to keep this to a minimum, however, on occasions it may by unavoidable.

Side rooms are allocated on the basis of medical/nursing need and cannot be requested.

We try to ensure single sex accommodation at all times (in exceptional circumstances this may not be possible due to clinical need).
