Hourly rounds introduced at Cromwell Hospital


I agree with Anonymous at12.38 . This type of round was done years ago as a matter of course and Nightingale Wards are a much safer place to be if you are ill than in single rooms where you cannot be seen. I also agree that nurses should always be visible to their patients and with the modern trend towards single rooms patients will feel less secure. It may feel more private initially but we were always able to maintain 'privacy' years ago when it was routine and not a buzzword.
