Description - Edward Street Hospital Hospitals West Bromwich
We have three in-patient wards at Edward Street Hospital: Kendrick, Salter, and Chance. Privacy and dignity is maintained on the wards at all times. Male and female patients are nursed in different accommodation on all wards.
Kendrick Ward provides support for older people with mental health needs such as dementia. Salter Ward provides support for older people with mental health needs such as depression and anxiety. Chance Ward provides support for older people who have both physical and mental health needs.
Our service helps people return to their homes. If someone is unable to return home, we help find appropriate accommodation in the community, according to someone’s mental and physical health needs.
During someone’s stay on our wards we make sure, as far as is possible, that they maintain some independence by doing day-to-day things such as making their beds, and washing and dressing themselves. Those unable to do so will be assisted by nursing staff.
We have lots of different kinds of staff supporting the people on our wards. Depending on their needs, someone might be getting special support from psychologists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, and physiotherapists. Together, these staff have a range of ways to help people both physically and mentally. This comes alongside the care that our nurses, consultant psychiatrists, and health care support workers give to patients.
We also arrange for people to get help from social workers should the need arise. When we begin planning for someone to return home or into the community, social workers help us make sure that the person’s social needs will be met when they are no longer in our care. For instance, social workers can help get funding for people who are looking to find a residential care home.
When we feel someone can be discharged from the hospital, we try to make sure that their future well-being is planned for.
