New nursing standards of practice to raise quality of care

NMC chief, Jackie Smith, said today that “New system of checks on nurses will raise standards”. The new nursing standards of practice has been launched to improve quality of care in the nursing profession.

NHS workers fear patients are being put at risk by a new system for calling in nurses to cover absences and vacancies in north hospitals.

The memo launched today says: “Where standard requests are deemed to be a risk, changes can be made with the authorisation of a designated manager.”.

But what is changed?

The “standard request” must be that eight-hour shifts by regular nursing staff are covered by five-hour shifts by bank staff, and 12-hour shifts are to be covered by eight-hour shifts.

Lets wait, to see how this new nursing standards of practice will be accepted by nurses managers and staff. And, we can’t forget  what Theresa May said about it: “We need all senior charge nurses and team leaders to be able to maximise the use of resources available for the benefit of their patients.
