The Hospital Taulí Palliative Care Hospitalization Unit moves to the 4th floor of the Albada building and significantly improves the comfort of patients and family 150 150 Parc Taulí current affairs

The change brings significant improvements in comfort for patients, family and professionals.

Patients admitted to the Palliative Care Hospitalization Unit of Parc Taulí have been transferred, a few days ago, to the 4th floor of the Albada building, renovated with the aim of improving comfort conditions for users. relatives and professionals of this service. Until now, this device was located on the 1st floor of the VII Centenary building.

The profile of people admitted to the Palliative Care Unit is, in the vast majority of cases, that of an adult cancer patient in a phase of advanced or terminal illness, with complex care needs and requiring support and symptomatic control. The Unit records about 800 discharges annually, 30 percent of which are home discharges.

The Unit has 21 beds in single rooms - except two shared - with bathroom and adapted shower, and with an auxiliary sofa bed so that the relatives or companions can rest there.

Beyond the care excellence that is offered, we also try to be able to offer welcoming spaces and guarantee the intimacy that the circumstance of these patients requires.


With the change, it has also gained its own space for families, outside the rooms, to rest, eat, relax and interact, and a room for doctor-family information. "Families spend many hours here, some 24 hours a day, and that's why these spaces are also very important for everyone," says the clinical director of the Albada Sociosanitary Center, Dr. Sebastià Gallardo.

In addition to this hospitalization plant, Parc Taulí integrates palliative patient care through three other devices:

  • The Interdisciplinary Sociosanitary Functional Unit (UFISS) of Palliation, from where they carry out the assessments of patients who are admitted to the acute care hospital, support the treatment and symptomatic control and, when indicated, coordinate the transfer to the Palliative Care Hospitalization Unit or to other units.
  • The Comprehensive Outpatient Assessment Team (EAIA) of Palliation, which assesses outpatients (the patient is at home and comes to visit). These patients are referred from internal or external acute hospitalization units or from the GP.
  • The Palliative Support Team Home Care Program (PADES), made up of three interdisciplinary teams of doctors, nurses, social workers and psychologists, experts in palliative care, to support, along with primary care, tax patients from being cared for at home.

The 4th floor of the Albada also now has new workspaces for professionals from the UFISS and the EAIA of Palliation.

    Hello, good morning, my mother was admitted to this facility until her death last November 3 and I have a walker and a new wheelchair because I haven't had time to use it, and I was wondering if they would accept it for someone who might need it. Muchas gracias and my most sincere gratitude to the whole team.
