As a team of nurses caring for you and your family we have many different roles and responsibilities.
To care for you we will:
- Ensure your comfort and well-being
- Ensure you have enough food and drink, rest and sleep
- Help you wash and dress
- Keep you as mobile as possible
- Work with the multi-disciplinary team to fully assess your needs to plan and provide your care
- Co-ordinate your care, ensuring hospital appointments are kept and all treatments are given
To protect you we will ensure your environment is safe, and take all precautions to prevent the spread of infection.
To care for your family we will ensure they also have our comfort and our support, and any information they need. They are also part of our team.
Practice Development/Clinical Placements
As a modern, forward-thinking department we believe in the development of our nursing staff into world-class practitioners, providing training, leadership, innovation and change.
Through practice development initiatives we are constantly striving to improve the quality of our care to you.
As educators we facilitate clinical placements for both under-graduate and post-graduate nursing students.
Infection Control is at the forefront of the day-to-day delivery of our services. Our policy is one of continuous improvement, with programmes to educate our staff and volunteers, our patients and their families about the role we must all take in order to maintain infection control.
As part of our infection control programme we monitor problem organisms and infections and ensure clear communication at all times.
