Nursing at Elder Care Homes in the UK

Author : Fusco Browne Comment : 0

The emerging need of specialised nursing care for elderly population in UK cannot be stressed more.  UK has 820,000 citizens suffering from dementia and most of them are being taken care of in failing care homes. 

Government inspectors from the Care Quality Commission have repeatedly highlighted the shocking shortage of qualified nursing care. The surveys have reported a shortage of nurses at 1 in 5 nursing care homes in England. The survey also resulted in closing down of homes. The prime problem in these failing care homes is of access to qualified nursing staff. As per the latest CQC figures, a large 29% of 157 care homes fell short of the specified care standards.

Care Quality Commission is an independent regulation of health and social care in England. They have monitoring and inspecting guidelines to assess social care services. These ratings are published and help the population in making their choices for elderly care home and such.

Some of the other problems stated by the CQC reports are lack in safeguarding measures for vulnerable patients, irregularity in safekeeping of stamped prescriptions and non compliance in other safety related systems and processes.

It was also discovered that the nursing staff at few elderly care centres was unqualified with minimum clarity on how to report incidents, health concerns and misses. Also the staff at some places had little access to qualified training, no idea of medication risk management, medical emergencies, and more.

All this clearly highlights the impending need of good and trusted healthcare nursing recruitment agencies.

Such agencies take meticulous care in filtering & recruiting the best candidate with quality training and other credentials for employment opportunities in UK. They source the best talent from across the globe to strengthen the medical workforce both qualitatively and qualitatively.
