1 A/ THE HOSPITAL AND WARDS|
The hospital usually has two main parts - an outpatient department and an inpatient department. The inpatient department is composed of wards. The most important personality in the ward is the head nurse. She has complete responsibility for the nursing staff, for the running of the wards and the standard of nursing and training.
Each ward unit is under the charge of a ward sister who is an experienced nurse, responsible to the head sister for all matters of nursing. She is assisted by Staff Nurses. The rest of nursing staff is made up of the probationer nurses and auxiliary nurses. They learn the basic art of nursing including bed making, washing patients, bedpan rounds, giving medicine, etc. The ward sister is responsible for their ward training.
A ward unit usually consists of the rooms for the patients, a day room for patients, an admission room, a treatment room, sister´s room, small laboratory and bathrooms and lavatories.
The general plan of a day´s work is ward rounds, operating, special treatments, etc. The patients are sent to the hospital by general practitioners, and, if it is necessary, they must stay in hospital for another treatment and they become inpatients.
