Day Patients and Inpatients
When you stay with us for one day you are called a day patient (because you come in, get your treatment, stay for a while to recover after your treatment and then go home all in one day.)
When you are staying as a patient for more than one day you are called an ‘inpatient’, (because lucky you, you get a chance to spend a little longer with us in CHI at Tallaght) Click on this link for more on Day ward services
