The Day Ward specialises in the administration of IV medication for neurology patients. In addition, we also provide diagnostic testing for all neurology patients.
The day ward in the Dublin Institute of Neurology is open 5 days a week. Two highly trained nurse specialists cater for general neurology patients who visit the clinic to receive Intravenous medication or for diagnostic testing. Tests carried out include:
• Lumbar puncture
• Skin biopsies
• Tensilon tests
This is an excellent resource for patients – particularly those who are working or have other commitments, as appointments can be arranged to facilitate the patient. The atmosphere in the day ward is relaxed and tranquil. While patients are being treated here, they can enjoy the views of a beautifully manicured Victorian garden, which adds to the ambiance and serenity of the area. This clinical setting, away from the hospital environment, providing expert care is a unique facility and is cherished by both staff and patients. Those with chronic conditions feel less dependent on the hospital services when they can visit a centre such as the Neurology Day Ward. The day ward is a win win situation for all concerned:
• Less stressful for patients
• Reduced waiting times for appointment
• Cost effective
Comments from patients : “ I was in hospital for 12 months before I came to the Day Ward. I have never looked back. I love the environment of the Day Ward. The staff are excellent and so efficient “ The Neurological clinic is a lovely place to come to every month to receive meds. The nurses are very friendly and highly efficient. The clinic makes an otherwise daunting experience, a very nice one
