0ver €6,000 towards the Parents Overnight Room at Temple Street ICU

Press Release   •   Jul 03, 2017 15:55 GMT

Temple Street's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) cares for some of Temple Street's sickest and most vulnerable patients.

With sometimes no warning whatsoever, people's lives are thrown into chaos when a child is admitted into the Intensive Care Unit. Being a parent of a child in ICU can be terrifying and having a facility where your family can stay in the hospital, near to your child can be invaluable. 

"Understandably, parents of ICU patients are often reluctant to spend any time away from their child when they are so ill. There is a small overnight room available just off the main ICU ward, allowing them to get some respite from the ward environment when they can. 

This room provides a valuable lifeline to parents of ICU patients at Temple Street, but the room itself is long overdue an upgrade.Anything we can do to make time spent here by distressed and worried parents a little easier is worthwhile."- Cailín Maguire, Temple Street Foundation.
