50% care home nurses want paramedics to communicate better

  • Comment

More than half of care home nurses want better communication and cooperation from paramedics, Austrian research suggests.

Researchers surveyed nurses, doctors and patients concerning 152 geriatric emergency cases in nursing homes.

The authors said: “The majority of nurses (96.2%) and physicians (79.4%) were content with the quality of emergency care, but showed less contentment with communication (57.6% of nurses; 22.4% of physicians) and with cooperation on-site (57.6% of nurses; 20.7% of physicians).
