Study Day on Caring for a Child with a Life-Limiting Condition

Study Day on Caring for a Child with a Life-Limiting Condition

Inspiring Study Day on Caring for Children with Life-Limiting Conditions Held in Kerry

On the 29th of May, the Rose Hotel in Tralee hosted a profoundly impactful event – the ‘Level A – Caring for a Child with a Life Limiting Condition’ study day. This event highlighted the incredible efforts being made in Kerry and across the Ireland to support children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, both in hospitals and within the community.

 

  • Organised by Priscilla Lyons, Specialist Coordinator Midwifery at Kerry CNME, Jane Garland, CCNE Coordinator of Level A/Level B Courses, and Karen Lovett, Clinical Nurse Coordinator for children with life-limiting conditions in Kerry, the day was a resounding success.

  • It showcased the collaborative spirit and dedication of healthcare professionals committed to improving the quality of life for these young patients and their families.

    We are deeply grateful for the support provided by the ‘Cashel Ward Fund’, which made this event possible. This fund, sustained by the generous donations from families who have received care in the paediatric facilities of University Hospital Kerry, plays a crucial role in facilitating such important initiatives.

    A heartfelt thank you to Ger and Mary, parents of Tadgh Costello, who passed away in October 2021. They shared their family’s journey with us, providing invaluable insights and touching the hearts of everyone present with their eloquent and brave recounting of their experiences.

    The study day served not only as an educational platform but also as a testament to the strong community and the compassionate care being extended to children with life-limiting conditions in Kerry and beyond. Thank you to everyone who contributed to and participated in this meaningful event. Together, we continue to make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.

Announcement on New Inpatient Bed Capacity

Announcement on New Inpatient Bed Capacity

UHK Welcomes Boost in Patient Care with New Inpatient Bed Capacity

University Hospital Kerry is delighted to welcome the announcement, by Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly, of a planned allocation of 108 additional inpatient beds, from 2025-2028, for the hospital.

 

  • This crucial expansion in bed capacity will enhance University Hospital Kerry’ s ability to appropriately meet the growing
    demand for inpatient facilities and ultimately improve patient care. The additional inpatient beds will bring about
    multiple benefits to the patients of Kerry including a more expedient transition from the Emergency Department to an
    inpatient bed, for patients deemed suitable for admission.
  • This announcement represents a very significant and noteworthy investing of financial capital resource into University
    Hospital Kerry and is in addition to ongoing progression of other significant capital projects for UHK such as the
    permanent Oncology build, Women’s Health Ambulatory Care offsite build, additional Operating Theatre and Dialysis
    Neutral pressure Room, onsite.
  • Mary Fitzgerald General Manager, on behalf of the entire management team at University Hospital Kerry, expressed
    enthusiasm in regard to the announcement by Minister Donnelly :
    ‘ We are very pleased and greatly appreciative of the announcement that UHK’s inpatient bed capacity will be expanded
    by 108 beds. The staff of UHK continually strive for excellence in the service they provide and one significant obstacle to
    this is our deficit in bed capacity – particularly single (isolation) rooms. Once operational, the additional bed capacity announced by Minister Donnelly, will enable the staff of University Hospital Kerry to deliver a much-enhanced inpatient
    service to the people of Kerry and beyond.
  • We are hugely grateful for the recognition of UHK’s bed capacity deficit and the support of the Minister for Health and our HSE Colleagues Regional and National who will work closely with us to bring these additional beds to fruition.’
