Nursing Homes are places which deliver Palliative care to numerous patients on a daily basis under total control of Qualified and experienced Nurses , maybe they could be involved with this training scheme.?
After the recent cases of North Staffs and Gosport I can understand why NHS England has taken the lead in this matter as it is now obvious they have serious problems to deal with.
But, as usual, the establishment seems to have little communications with the Care Homes Sector which , as we all know is often in the media for comparatively minor infringements of Safeguarding.
Not quite the same in the Nursing Home Sector Nurse Manager fined for not predicting Fire Doors with push bars are a Safety Hazard fined for £20K and struck off .Care Home Props. fined £1.5 million pounds and subsequently closed down through bankruptcy .
Lets see what happens at Glosthorpe Hospital approx 600 people died (prematurely)
Surely training is carried out by Unison members , maybe Unison needs to have a word with their members, LACK OF COMMS
General lack of respect out there, moral standards have declined since materialism has taken over.
Nurses nowadays have to deal with so much technical info AI is the only way forward.
This situation is not new and has considerably worsened since the NHS and the Local Authorities have begun collaborating, we have questioned the sense or reason behind this on several occasions without getting any sensible answers.
Both Authorities are pleading poverty all the times and yet continue this sort of blatantly inefficient system which is causing untold problems for everyone concerned.
I have been advocating that the Nurses in the Private Sector stand up for themselves for years and I must say that ,recently they have responded to this call by being involved more in this Journal .
What we have seen lately the same courses should be made available to staff from NHS trusts .There is definitely room for improvement there.
Compare this with what an NHS trust is paid for the same job and it is a complete insult and then people wonder why there is bed blocking and failing Nursing Homes (where is all this massive profits that the bigots go on about.
By the way just in case you missed it, this is the Weekly rate, Not the daily rate
