Description of Ormsby Ward
The Ward has 31 beds shared between orthopaedics and general surgery, from an orthopaedic point of view, many of our patients will be having a hip or knee replacement or surgery to their shoulder or spine.
The Ward is named after Sir Lambert Ormsby, who was a surgeon who served both the Meath Hospital and National Children's Hospital for many years. With Eleanor Lyons, the Lady Superintendent of the Meath Hospital, he founded the Dublin Red Cross Nursing Sisters’ Home and Training School for Nurses in 1885 which supplied trained nurses to the Meath and National Children’s Hospitals.
Ward Philosophy - It is important to us that our patients feel welcome during their stay on Ormsby. Patients and their families should find that staff are approachable and endeavour to meet their needs. Our priorities are safe, effective care for our patients and a good working environment for our staff and students
