Ward 1: Wound care and psychogeriatrics

We treat adult patients from Espoo, Kauniainen and Kirkkonummi. Patients are referrals from specialised medical care or an emergency department. 

Our special expertise is wound care and psycho-geriatrics. We treat elderly who need psychiatric care, for example patients who suffer from severe depression or behavioural symptoms that indicate a memory-related disease. Patients may also come to the ward for other reasons to receive further care and rehabilitation.

We support the patient's independence and focus on rehabilitation. Patients are encouraged to operate on their own and get help only when needed.

Rehabilitation is planned together with the patient by a multidisciplinary team, consisting of sufficient hospital staff. The team may for example consist of a doctor, nurse, practical nurse, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and a social worker. In rehabilitation we consider the patient’s needs and strength.

The patient is sent home when health permits. If needed, rehabilitation continues at home.
