Chair/bed donated to Darlington Memorial Hospital

chair/bed dmh

Darlington Memorial Hospital has purchased a comfortable chair/bed with £750, donated by homebuilder Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire.

The chair/bed will be based on ward 42 and Sister Maureen Flatman, ward manager, comments: "We have many relatives who wish to stay over, especially those of our younger patients, and we're happy for them to do so.  We're delighted that this chair/bed means they can be comfortable and it will be especially useful for families when the patient needs to be with us for more than a few days.

"The benefits of a good night's sleep can make all the difference at a difficult time for families, who we often get to know well."



'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
