Creating private space for families and professionals adjacent to the rooms of chronically and terminally ill patients

It will also create a professional conference room for nursing and allied staff on the Transforming Care at the Bedside unit. The grant also supports the purchase of hands-free headsets for clerical staff which will enhance the work environment for those who are the hub of communications in the unit.
