Masters not Servants

25 March, 2013 (16:47) | Patient-Centered Care, workload | By: Helga Perry

Interesting piece by Liz Charalambous in Nursing Times 22nd March. Commenting on the Francis Report, she reminds us that we need to master nursing paperwork, not be its slave. It’s all about recording the right things accurately and for the right purpose. Make sure that we are using it as a tool to enhance patient care, not as an end in itself.  As Liz says,

We need to master it, we need to take a universal approach and reduce the amount of it so that we can spend more time with patients.

Something very dear to our hearts here at EEPDtalk.
