TVs for patient rooms
£1,200 for 10 units
Televisions in hospital offer a welcome distraction during a difficult time. While at home, people watch TV an average of six hours a day. In a hospital, TV viewing increases to almost 11 hours each day. Clinical experts agree that a patient's hospital room plays a role in the healing process and overall satisfaction. All of our 26 patient rooms contain a television with access to Freeview. We need to replace these small, wall-mounted LCD TVs in 10 rooms at a cost of about £120 each.
"I certainly appreciated and spent many hours watching my little TV when I was an inpatient there for many months. The care you provide is invaluable and this just adds to what patients need especially when away from home for so long."
Modern hospital indoor environments aim at fulfilling the psychological needs and preferences of the people who use them. Nowadays, physical and non-physical healing environments are perceived as potential contributors to recovery processes. Unlike curing, healing relates to aspects of health that are psychological and spiritual. To support this, our patients rooms, while maintaining the highest of clinical standards, are also as comfortable as we can make them.
