The Royal Hospital Donnybrook (RHD) has 178 beds, 112 inpatient beds (108 rehabilitation and four respite) and 66 residential care beds.
The key to our successful rehabilitation programmes is a combination of a comprehensive assessment, committed multidisciplinary and patient-centred approaches resulting in structured and individualised patient care plans.
The multidisciplinary team includes:
- Occupational Therapy
- Medical Social Work
- Speech & Language Therapy
- Nutrition & Dietetics
Multidisciplinary teams set rehabilitation goals and map progress for each patient. These goals are made with the patient’s involvement.
Discharge planning is an important element of the rehabilitation process and will commence upon admission whereby a provisional discharge date will be determined following the initial multidisciplinary meeting. Family meetings are also organised when needed. When necessary, a home visit is conducted to assess a patient’s home environment so as to facilitate a safe discharge.
The hospital’s patient streams are outlined below.
