Hourly rounds introduced at Cromwell Hospital


It does get done and in the NHS. I have practiced this type of care as have my colleagues for many years. Nurses should be able to multitask and while carrying out an assessment aren't you with the patient? In bays and the few Nightingale wards left this type of care is easy as you should be based in the bay/ward in view of patients. I think it is more necessary in private/single room care where patients are 'shut away' behind doors. Nurses use so many excuses for not getting things done. Think of the time it takes to make excuses and use it for caring for patients.
