Nurse station ‘grand designs’

Decoration themes were picked out of a hat, on how Essie Summers teams would get to ‘glam up’ a nurse station. Themes included ‘neon’, ‘beach/summer’, ‘romance’, ‘jungle”, ‘outer space’ and ‘fantasy’.

Staff worked together to transform each of the nurse’s stations, then visitors and residents got to vote on which was the best.

The residents were left in awe at the sights of some stations. They were happy to see something different.

Each station was brought to life with different materials and colours, and it felt as though you really were in a different place.

The hospital won the vote, with a jungle theme. Everyone enjoyed the event, and it was sad to see these decorations taken out.
