Surgical Inpatient Ward 4 A


The Surgical Inpatient Ward 4 A treats patients in need of urological and gastro-surgical care, among others. Patient rooms are located along two corridors and the corridors are called cells. Rooms 11–18 form Cell 1 which is a so-called emergency cell. Patients in Cell 1 include urological and gastro-surgical patients. Rooms 21–28 form Cell 2, which provides treatment for patients in the specialties of gastro-surgery, general surgery, and ear, nose, and throat diseases. Cell 2 also treats gynecological cancer patients. Patients arrive to the ward via emergency services, via the LEIKO unit (to surgery from home), or from other care units with a doctor's referral.

The ward employs specialists in urology and gastro-surgery, doctors specializing in surgery, registered nurses, and practical nurses. The staff has special expertise e.g. in treating urological patients and stoma patients. The Surgical Inpatient Ward 4 A holds 29 hospital beds and the average ward stay lasts 4 days.

Visiting hours at the ward are 1:00pm–7:00pm.
