About The Opportunity
The Ambulatory Care Service provides care to acute clients in a hospital environment without the need for hospital admission. Patient referral sources come from within the hospital, Consultant VMO’s and Local Medical Officers. Some of these patients also are shared with community health with weekly case conference. Ambulatory Care attends to many infusions, wound management, medical and surgical procedures.

Ambulatory care assists in the early discharge of patients. The Ambulatory Care NUM where possible will attend patient journey board rounds in ward 1A and 2A to identify patients who are able to be discharged with Ambulatory Care and community services. This includes patients that may require specialist follow up by the chronic care CNS 2 for Respiratory or Cardiac Failure.

As well as providing medical and nursing services Ambulatory Care is a multidisciplinary team which includes Allied Health Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Social Worker. This group runs a very successful falls intervention service. Our Falls Intervention Team is well established and conducts 4 cycles of Able and Stable annually, each cycle run for 9 weeks. The multidisciplinary team meet weekly for case conference to discuss management and streamline the falls patient journey .This team includes the ASSET CNC, Dementia CNC and Emergency Department physiotherapist.
Ambulatory care comprises of 1 Doctors room, procedure room, 3 beds and 2 isolation rooms. As there is no Outpatients Department (OPD) in Fairfield Hospital, Ambulatory Care facilitates some outpatient clinics that are supported when able by the Ambulatory Care Nursing and Administration Staff. These clinics include Surgical, Orthopaedic and Medical Review clinics. Occasions of service for these clinics totalled 1,864 in 2016, which was another increase of patients seen. 

The Day Only Ward (DOW) is located on level 2 next to the Operating suite. DOW functions Monday to Saturday with the exception of Public Holidays. This is a closed unit due to capacity, patient safety and confidentiality. The majority of booked surgical patients (except paediatrics and planned caesarean patients) are admitted to the DOW for planned pre-operative and post-operative care. 

There are 4 surgical specialties General, Orthopaedic, Gynaecology and Hands. Patients are elective as well as emergency patients. 
 Patients are signed out by relative /carer and post-operative instructions and paperwork is given. This service continues to have positive results from patients and carers who appreciate the care given and concern shown.

DOW has a capacity of 12 beds and 7 chairs. At times this is not adequate due to increased patient numbers and flow processes to the department. This results in delays to Operating Theatres. This is more obvious when there are concurrent list which have a quick turnaround such as colonoscopies and the hand list. The Day Only Ward reports to the Operating Theatre Management Committee.
