Aspen Ward is nominated by a senior colleague for their ‘constant professionalism, dedication and flexibility’ during winter pressures when they opened up beds to take patients from Chestnut Ward as well as their usual job of running the surgical day case unit from their ward on a daily basis.
The service (delivered by one registered nurse and two healthcare assistants) managed up to 15 surgical patients per day in addition to the medical inpatients they took into the unit. They are praised, not only for the way they coped with significant change in their activity, but also for delivering this in a helpful and supportive environment which enabled the delivery of excellent care throughout the winter and beyond.
