Quotes

Matthew Hamilton, EU/International advisor for the RCN, says: "These priorities extend to all areas of nursing and we will ensure that MEPs engage with this. The EU has published figures that there will be a shortage of nurses across the EU by 2020, which will affect the level of care given to patients, and this applies just as much to community nurses as it does to hospital nurses."
"The standards clearly mention health visitors, school nurses and practice nursing teams, and the specific minimum requirements they should meet. The document content will be used by the inspectorate body such as CQC to measure this" said Ms Smith
"Community nursing teams are already working under a great deal of pressure with too few resources and too few staff. The promise of 10,000 more frontline staff will be welcomed by these nurses, but the fact that there is little detail about where they will come from and how they will be resourced is extremely worrying."
"They are not going to go to the sunk, wash their hands, dry their hands and leave the patient exposed in that way. So there are occasions when nurses and doctors have to make decision about what the patient needs most and sometimes safety will come first and hand hygiene will come second. We will never, ever have 100% hand-hygiene compliance. I think that would be unrealistic."
