Hourly rounds introduced at Cromwell Hospital

Comment

Rounding seems to have formalised something many nurses have always done. We were taught to and still do always check if our patients need anything before we went on our breaks ( as we are in our 6 bed bay clearly visable till then !) and rounded at least 2/24 on night duty . However as we are soon to move to a hospital where the wards are all single rooms ( not sure how I feel about that yet ) I can see how important rounding will become.
