Day Unit Facilities
(Continued from page 3)
Relationships between patients and
staff and between staff members are
as informal as possible. The staff
members wear street clothes, rather
than the traditional white uniforms;
and this tends to make the atmosphere
more like that of everyday living.
Thus, experiences in interpersonal
relationships occurring in the Day
Unit can be more easily translated
into home and community situations.
The following are some of the pro
grammed activities of the Day Unit;
Group discussions
Public speaking courses and drama
groups
Guest lecturers, movies, and certain
recorded programs
Dancing classes, game learning ses
sions and group sings
Courses in art and music apprecia
tion
Cooking classes and business lun
cheons
I)icluded in the staff are: a psychi
atrist, a nurse, a psychologist, an oc
cupational therapist, a consulting
social worker, a psychiatric assistant,
psychiatric aides and attendants, a
secretary-receptionist, and rotating
personnel. Those included in the
“rotating per.sonnel” are: psychiatric
residents, psychology trainees, med
ical students, nursing students and
volunteers.
The Day Unit program w'ill serve
many individuals by helping them
cope with their problems and thus
preventing the need of full time hos-
l)italization.
The Unit will also serve as a transi
tional facility. Patients who are
sufficiently recovered from their emo
tional disturbance to no longer need
full time inpatient care can be al
lowed a gradual re-entrance into the
community via the Day Unit. As
this adjustment is accomplished, the
patient may progress to the point
where he will require only outpatient
therapy.
From
The
Auxiliary
by Betty Lbiach
and
Peggy Warner
April Fool’s Day took a new twist
at Duke Hospital this year w’hen the
Auxiliary put on its twelfth annual
Pink Elephant Rummage Sale in one
of the medical school classrooms
which happened to be vacant during
the spring holidays. This year’s sale
was once again under the capable di
rection of Mrs. James Wyngaarden
who w'as assisted by Mrs. William
Hudson.
The satisfied shoppers were main-
}y employees. and staff of Duke Hos
pital.
Auxiliary members count on the
sale as a needed push to clean out and
sort out all the contents of their
closets, attics, and basements. The
sale produced a wide selection of
adult’s and children’s clothing as
well as many household articles such
as: a spool bed, glassware, pots and
pans, tools, books, records, draperies,
and even some outdoor furniture.
An added attraction this year was
the “Pig in a Poke” raffle under the
direction of Mrs. Bayard Carter. For
a 250 chance, some lucky shopper
took home a brand new pressure cook
er. Other valuable items won by the
fortunate ticket holders proved the
“Pig in a Poke” highly .successful.
All proceeds from the sale were
deposited in the Auxiliary’s general
fund and will be used to expand the
Auxiliary’s services in the hospital.
Other chairmen for the sale were:
Telephoning: Mrs. Julian Ruffin, as
sisted by Mrs. Bayard Carter, Max
Besser, Sue Bryant, Gaither Dunn,
