A huge thank you to Dr Nizar Merali, who’s kind donation in memory of his mother Fatmabai Roshanali Merali enabled the renovation of the side room on the stroke ward at Watford General Hospital. Fatmabai was cared for in the room for a month before she passed away; Dr Merali, a GP for 40 years, decided he wanted to renovate the space as a way to say thank you for the ‘phenomenal team and care’ his mother received at Watford General.
Renovations included installing a new sink, air conditioning, a spacious patient belongings cabinet, a carer’s chair that turns into a little bed to enable family to stay close to their loved ones, a giant iPad and the beautiful wall mural. Dr Merali said he thought it would be lovely to create a space to enhance the quality of life in the last moments of a loved one’s life. Thank you Dr Merali for your kindness and generosity, and for making a difference to stroke patients at Watford General.
