Lincs trust challenges staff and patients to bed-making challenge

  • Comment

Staff and visitors were challenged to make a bed in record time as part of International Nurses’ Day celebrations at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

Each of the trust’s four hospital sites staged a bed-making challenge in their main reception areas to see who could complete this everyday nursing task the fastest.

In the run-up to the awareness day patients, public and NHS workers were encouraged to record personal messages of support for nurses on specially designed postcards.

The postcards were then displayed in the entrances to Lincoln County Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital, Grantham and District Hospital and County Hospital, Louth.

“International Nurses Day is a great opportunity to highlight the important role nurses play in patient care,” said the trust’s acting chief nurse Pauleen Pratt.

“We are using the day to share an extra special thank you to our nursing staff for the work they do,” she said.

But she added that the day was also an opportunity to thank the many other workers who played an essential role in supporting patient care.
