“I foresee that we will need more chronic sick beds in the future as our population ages. Many of our patients are bedbound and require total assistance in daily activities. Some of them are on tracheostomy tubes and enteral feeding tubes.
They cannot be discharged as their caregivers are unable to cope. I’m working on the improvement of the patient communication board with the allied health team to allow staff to understand patients’ care needs at a glance. In the near future, we will also look at redesigning the layout of the wards to provide better care for our patients.”
