"Home hospital" at Biała Podlaska
This medical facility - the first and only in this area of the country, has been officially named after the Foundation. The ward has been dubbed "home hospital" because, firstly, the staff go out of their way to make sure that their patients - elderly patients and people suffering from chronic conditions and requiring constant care and treatment feel like they have never left their homes. Secondly, some patients, instead of being admitted into the hospital can stay in their homes and doctors and nurses visit them. Benefits of such a patient-oriented approach are very beneficial to the process of recovery because it minimizes the stress, which often hinders treatment significantly. The homely atmosphere of the ward prevents the patients from suffering emotional strain more often than not associated with staying in a hospital.
