Using one-page profiles to personalise care


is this not just a way of steering around 'conversing' with our patients? the demands placed on us nursing staff are ever increasing and leaves no time for compassionate 'conversations' with those we care for at their most vulnerable times. im a little cynical to say the least, that getting to know our patients is becoming ever more distant, and is now being suggested as 'assigned to one piece of A4' pinned above their heads... 'dont stop and talk to Mrs Jones to ask why she looks sad / frightened / worried etc, just read the peice of paper above her head, then you dont even need to offer eye contact'. no, this isnt for me, more time for listening to my patients please, less paperwork.
