Murphy Ward is a 27-bedded ENT, Maxillo-facial, Ophthalmic, Urology, Gynaecology and Orthopaedic ward that cares for patients undergoing both elective and emergency surgery. However emergency admissions can be of any surgical speciality.


Within normal clinic working hours, the urology department offers a service for patients with blocked or problem catheters.  On occasions, the doctor sees ENT patients on the ward, and therefore this creates a lot of activity but a very challenging learning environment.


In order to effectively care for all patients, the ward is divided each day by patient allocation. The nurses introduce themselves to their patients on admission.


The ward co-ordinator or nurse-in-charge of the shift has primary responsibility for the co-ordination and effective management of the ward.
