Happy WDAD from
St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals in WA
Chok Lui, Consultant Aged Care & Rehabilitation reported on WDAD activities
This was the first time we took part. We created stickers, information sheet from iDelirium, and a chocolate mud cakes (see pictures) where we distributed to wards and emergency department. Our Aged Care clinical nurse consultant, Lyn Fell, did an excellent job by roaming around the hospital, testing staff about their knowledge regarding delirium and rewarding them with more sugary treats.
Thanks for sharing Chok and well done to you all.
