    Hand on heart for the healthcare heroes

    24 Aug 2017

    Pictured L to R are Dr James O’Rourke, Consultant Anaesthetist, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, with Mr John Kelly, (69) from Cappawhite in Tipperary, All-Ireland Championship winning hurler (1971), at Beaumont’s ‘Honour Your Heros’ awards last week. The awards saw former patients of Beaumont Hospital return to pass on their thanks to members of hospital staff whom they believe went the extra mile in helping them regain their health and wellbeing. Mr Kelly was taken to hospital off a flight home from the US and initially diagnosed with pneumonia and a clot on his right lung, but when he continued to have complications with his recovery, a further brain CT scan revealed a posterior fossa brain tumour. He had brain surgery and spent a year-and-a-half in Beaumont Hospital.
