Hiqa Reports

The original St Patrick’s Hospital opened in September 1870 and was located in the city but transferred to a new purpose-built hospital on the outskirts of the city in Curraheen on 17 September 2011.

St Patrick’s is a three-storey, purpose-built designated centre and is part of a large new hospital building that includes palliative care, an education centre and numerous related offices.

All floors are accessed by a number of lifts and a number of sets of stairs.

The designated centre for older people is made up of three wards/units that provide continuing care which are St Anne’s Ward on the lower ground floor, St John’s Ward on the ground floor, and St Camillus’ Ward on the first floor.

There are large decorative gardens which are easily accessible from the wards and activities area which contain ample seating for the residents.

There are walkways around the building and seating for residents and relatives to enjoy the view of the countryside.

Large car parks are available to the front and side of the building.

What is the Nursing Homes Support Scheme?

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme provides financial support towards the cost of long-term nursing home care. Under the scheme, people who need nursing home care have their income and assets assessed, and then make a contribution towards the cost of their care based on their assessment.

The HSE will pay the rest, if any, of the costs of their care in designated public and approved private nursing homes covered under the scheme. People can choose care in any of the nursing homes included in the scheme provided that the nursing home can cater for the person's particular needs and that it has a place available for the person.

As the budget for this scheme is fixed each year, at times a waiting list for financial support may be in place
