Stunning 'Sealife' Theme Makeover at Kingston Hospital Thanks to Children's Charity Refurb
Stunning scenes of blue seas and brightly-coloured tropical fish now adorn the walls of the Triage Room in Paediatric A&E and a Consulting Room in Children’s Outpatients at Kingston Hospital, thanks to recent refurbishment projects by local children’s charity Momentum.
Momentum recently renovated three rooms at Kingston, thanks to sponsors The Generations Foundation and Thomas Cook Children’s Charity who between them donated just under £10,000 towards these three projects.
The A&E Triage Room, where almost all children are seen when they first arrive at A&E and a Consulting Room in Children’s Outpatients received a colourful sealife makeover, while the A&E Teen Cubicle has been decorated with a fun City Skyline theme.
Paediatric Dept Senior Sister Nina Boorman said: “The newly refurbished rooms have made such a difference to the staff and patients. The seallife scenes are calm and uplifting which is imperative in helping to relieve the anxiety that many families can understandably feel when they visit hospital. We are incredibly grateful to Momentum and the sponsors for making these makeovers possible.”
In addition to refurbishing large areas of the Paediatric Department at Kingston Hospital to enhance the healing environment, Momentum provides emotional and practical support to many families at the hospital as part of its Family Support Programme.
