Exclusive: CNO defends takeover of safe staffing work


Anonymous | 7-Jun-2015 5:41 pm your words are so true. If JC practiced the 6'Cs she preaches, she would ensure wards were staffed with decently paid NHS nurses not those from an agency. She would reduce the amount of ridiculous and unnecessary paperwork that takes trained staff away from the bedside who then have to rely on often poorly trained HCA s (not all may I add) to provide direct patient care. She would ensure that mandatory training involved regular updates on the EWS system and SEPSIS management. She would be open and honest about revalidation and how, given staff shortages, the new system will not work unless nurses spend even more of their own unpaid time ensuring they meet requirements.
