2017 – 2020 – We need your help to raise €250,000
The Intensive Care Unit and Operating Theatres at MUH carry out the most invasive procedures and treatments on the sickest patients in the hospital. They care for critically ill patients of every age fighting to regain their health.
Treatment: It is vital that our experienced medical teams have access to the very best equipment to give every patient the chance to recover from the disease or illness affecting them as quickly as possible.
Care: Our values include ‘Partnership’ and that is why it is so important to us that whilst we are investing in state-of-the-art equipment that those who care for critically ill patients, our nurses, are also supported. We want to support their education so that they can be empowered to improve and grow their passion for their area of work so that they can become the champions of excellence in Intensive Care.
Funds that you donate will deliver life-saving improvements such as:
2 Motorised Comfort Chairs – €10,000
According to ICU Nurse Manager, Elaine Hanna “having intensive care patients sit out of bed improves their respiration and mental wellbeing and reduces many of the complications of immobilization, it promotes patients’ comfort and can reduce the risk of pressure ulcers.”
Portable Ventilator – €5,000
Having access to a portable ventilator enables the ICU team to safely bring critically ill patients for scans or to one of our operating theatres for surgery. We now need to raise the €5,000 required to purchase this essential equipment.
Specialist Training – €10,000
We remain committed to supporting specialist training for our nurses and carers and aim to raise €10,000 every year to support them as they become champions of care.
