  • Self explanatory – may be worth pointing out that if we were to redo the health economics analysis on 2011 figures we would expect much higher costs
  • They set a clear aim and exceeded their target for rescreening using ‘MUST’

  • Over the last couple of years the NHS has not only seen tremendous change, but has had to answer for the quality of care and culture within its organisations.These difficulties have been highlighted within the Francis report and most recently Don Berwick’s review of the NHS safety culture.Nursing care has never before been under the spotlight in such a way. We have heard some terrible stories relating to poor care from distressed relatives to other members of the nursing teams.
  • The Keogh Reviews have once again highlighted the need for a National robust nursing & midwifery strategy which of course as you know is compassion in practice
  • CNO Jane Cummings launched the nursing & midwifery 3 year strategy at last years CNO conference. The National lead is Juliet Beal and our Regional lead is Julie Firth.With the findings of the Keogh Reviews, and the Don Berwick review on the NHS, Compassion in Care has become even more relative in these changing times.
  • So let’s remind ourselves……CareDelivering high quality care is what we do. People receiving care expect it to be right for them consistently throughout every stage of their life.CompassionCompassion is how care is given, through relationships based on empathy, kindness, respect and dignity.CompetenceCompetence means we have the knowledge and skills to do the job and the capability to deliver the highest standards of care based on research and evidence. CommunicationGood communication involves better listening and shared decision making - ‘no decision about me without me’.CourageCourage enables us to do the right thing for the people we care for, be bold when we have good ideas, and to speak up when things are wrong. CommitmentCommitment will make our vision for the person receiving care, our professions and our teams happen. We commit to take action to achieve this.

  • Cambridgeshire children’s community nursing team provide life-lineThe children’s community nursing team at Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust has been announced as the winner of NHS England’s 6Cs Live! September Story of the Month.Team photo, from left to right: Jenni Sherman, Children’s Community Nurse; Vicky Amiss-Smith, Continuing Care Nurse; MagsHirst, Play SpecialistThey have been chosen for the care they give to eight year old Ollie Duell and his family from Cambridge, helping them cope with the devastating impact of his illnesses.  Ollie’s mum Claire explains: "Since he was a baby Ollie has lived with a condition called Intestinal pseudo-obstruction where the intestines lose their ability to contract and push food and stools through his system." "Ultimately," she continues "this resulted in Ollie needing a multi-organ transplant (bowel, stomach, intestines and pancreas) and creation of a stoma at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital in October 2010 when he was just five years old. Since then he has had multiple problems with his stomach, bowel, intestines, duodenum and colon. "The nurses from the children’s community nursing team have been with us since Ollie was 3 months old, so know him inside out and provide the majority of his care at home, hugely reducing the amount of time he has had to spend in hospital."She says that the children’s nursing team have offered them a life-line, becoming part of their family and continues:"I cannot thank the children’s nursing team enough for all the care they give Ollie and the entire family. We consider them an integral part of our family life; without them it’s simple, we just wouldn’t cope."Ollie, like most boys is addicted to computer games and, as MagsHirst, Play Specialist with the children’s community nursing team explains, this can be used as a positive part of this care programme: "Ollie is a very special boy and copes with his conditions remarkably well but like all of us, every now and then he needs that extra bit of help. Through therapeutic play, we use computer games as one way to help him manage any concerns or fears he may have about his illness and treatment."The panel - which includes representatives from NHS England, Nursing Times, a 6Cs Live! patient champion and the RCNs Nurse of the Year – felt that the children’s community nursing team exemplified the values of the 6Cs. Sam Sherrington, Head of Nursing and Midwifery Strategy at NHS England, said:"When we read Ollie’s story it really struck all of the panel members how much of a difference the children’s community nursing team make to his and his family’s life. The team’s work shows that where the 6Cs of care, compassion, courage, commitment, communication and competence are used it is really felt by the patient and their families""The team not only provide vital care to Ollie but enable his family to spend precious time re-charging their batteries and doing the everyday simple things that most of us take for granted."As a result of the team’s fantastic care Ollie has been able to spend much more time at home and avoid stays in hospital as much as possible."Catherine Ray, a senior sister at Solihull Hospital, has been picked as the first ever winner of NHS England’s 6Cs Live! and Nursing Times’ story of the month competition.Catherine’s story was chosen from nearly forty other entries by the judging panel, which includes representatives from NHS England, Nursing Times, a 6Cs Live! patient champion and the RCNs Nurse of the Year.It was chosen because Catherine’s work showed exceptional nursing practice and embodied the 6Cs, showing care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment towards her patient and his family.Catherine described how a patient with terminal lung cancer was made to feel as comfortable as possible and ensured his family was around him, with her going as far as to arrange for the gentleman’s pregnant daughter to have a 4D scan so he could see images of his unborn grandson.Catherine said:“The atmosphere on the ward was indescribable and the patient was so excited to meet his grandson, his spirits lifted and the staff were so happy to be a part of it.The patient went home soon after and died peacefully with his family around him.Catherine continued:“The family have been back on the ward a few times to visit and the last time they brought the new addition to the family, the healthy baby boy that we saw on that scan.”Sam Sherrington, Head of Nursing and Midwifery Strategy at NHS England, said:“Catherine went above and beyond to make her patient’s last few weeks as comfortable as possible, arranging a side room with an additional bed for his family to stay with him, arranging for him to go home the same day he decided – and the 4D scan showed such compassion.“It’s these individual stories that we want to hear about. There’s so much great nursing care going on right across the country and this is our chance to really shout about it.”Mandie Sunderland, chief nurse at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, said:“Good nursing requires many skills and attributes which have a positive impact on the patient experience and these are illustrated wonderfully in this short story.“Examples of where nurses have gone the extra mile to provide care and compassion like this should be celebrated. I am proud of Catherine’s achievement as winner of the first story of the month competition.”NHS England, in partnership with Nursing Times, is running the story of the month competition to find good examples of 6Cs practice and the winning story will be featured on the Nursing Times website and the 6Cs Live! Communications Hub.

    10. 10. PRESSURE ULCER RECOGNITION AND PREVENTION.. United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust Mark Collier, Lead Nurse/Consultant - Tissue Viability, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust
    11. 11. Pressure Ulcers:
    12. 12. Current terminology? • Bedsore • Pressure Sore • Decubitus Ulcer • Pressure Ulcer What term do you use/prefer?
    13. 13. What is a Pressure Ulcer? ‘A pressure ulcer is a localized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear. A number of contributing or confounding factors are also associated with pressure ulcers; the significance of these factors is yet to be elucidated. (EPUAP 2009)
    14. 14. What is a Pressure Ulcer? ‘Ulceration of the skin due to the effects of prolonged pressure, in association with a number of other variables’ (Collier 1995) ‘an area of localised damage to the skin which can extend to underlying structures such as muscle and bone. The damage is caused by a combination of pressure, shearing and friction forces and moisture’ (NICE, 2005)
    15. 15. Pressure External pressure will be transmitted from the skin to the underlying bone, compressing the tissues, including the smaller blood vessels, between these two structures. When prolonged this pressure can lead to inadequate blood supply and cause tissue death.
    16. 16. Shear A parallel force, shear damage occurs when deeper skin layers and skeleton move away from the upper skin layers. This causes stretching of the small blood vessels which, if unrelieved, will lead to inadequate blood supply leading to tissue death. For example when a patient slides down the bed the skin over the sacral area adheres to the bed sheets and remains in the sitting position as gravity forces the deeper underlying tissues and bone to slip down the bed.
    17. 17. Friction Friction results form is the skin rubbing against another surface. Friction forces can contribute to the development of pressure ulcers by causing the skin layers to separate forming a blister, or by compromising the intact nature of the skin. For example ill-fitting shoes or during poor moving and handling techniques, such as moving patients up the bed on a sheet .
    18. 18. Can you measure Pressure?.. ‘a perpendicular load or force exerted on a unit of area’ Bennett and Lee (1985) Force Pressure = --------------Surface Area
    19. 19. Potential Sites for Pressure Ulcers • Bony prominences • Consider – – – – Oxygen masks Catheters and tubing Surgical appliances Prosthesis
    20. 20. Factors that increase the risk of developing a pressure ulcer
    21. 21. Variables - ‘evidence based’ • Age • Nutrition • Medical Condition • Medical Interventions • Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) • Patient Support Surfaces • Drug Therapy • Care being Given
    22. 22. Age • Extremes of age • The skin of elderly patients is thinner, drier and less elastic increasing the risk of damage. • Neonates and young children are also at increased risk of skin damage because their skin is still maturing.
    23. 23. Nutritional Status • Dehydration and malnutrition lead to poorly nourished, inelastic tissues that are more prone to damage. • Consider – Likes and dislikes – Appetite – Chewing and swallowing difficulties – dentures, sore throat/mouth – Physical ability to feed themselves?
    24. 24. BMI • Very thin patients have less fatty tissue over the bony prominences to protect from pressure. • Obese patients may have difficulty moving and therefore repositioning to relieve pressure.
    25. 25. Medical History • Conditions causing reduced mobility & sensation. • Terminal illness due to multi-organ failure, poor nutritional status & immobility. • Conditions affecting the circulation and oxygenation of the blood. • Consider – – – – – Heart disease COPD and lung diseases Peripheral vascular disease Diabetes Anaemia
    26. 26. Medication • Anti-inflammatory drugs (including aspirin) and steroids may prevent healing. • Chemotherapy drugs may damage healthy tissues. • Sedative drugs may affect mobility and sensation.
    27. 27. Reduced Mobility • Inability to move self in order to relieve the pressure. • Consider immobility/reduced mobility due to: – – – – – – – – – – #’s Surgery Epidurals Traction Pain Paralysis CVA MS Arthritis Drains & tubing
    28. 28. Sensory Impairment/ Reduced Consciousness • Unaware of the need to relieve pressure. • Consider – – – – – Unconsciousness Sedation Spinal Cord Injury Diabetic neuropathy Neurological Conditions egg MS, CVA
    29. 29. Moisture Lesions • A combination of moisture and friction may cause moisture lesions in skin folds. • A lesion that is limited to the natal cleft only and has a linear shape is likely to be a moisture lesion. • Peri-anal discolouration / skin irritation is most likely to be a moisture lesion due to faeces.
    30. 30. Incontinence • Urinary and faecal incontinence cause excoriation of the skin. • Moisture causes maceration of the skin. • Consider – Barrier creams/films
    31. 31. Skin Hygiene • Excessive use of soaps will remove the skin’s natural protective oils and dehydrate it. • Consider – Skin cleansers
    32. 32. Cost of Pressure Ulcers? Additional treatment / management costs associated with an Orthopaedic patient with one Grade 4 Pressure Ulcer equals…. £40,000 Sterling Collier M (1993) Quality Report, Addenbrookes NHS Trust from £1,214 (cat 1) to £14,108 (cat IV) Dealey C, Posnett J et al (2012)

    34. 34. SSKIN - what does it stand for? • • • • • S = Surface S = Skin Inspection K = Keep moving I = Incontinence N = Nutrition
    35. 35. Patient Support Surfaces available? PRESSURE REDUCING? PRESSURE RELIEVING?
    36. 36. Prevention and Management Support Surfaces • Static foam mattresses • Huntleigh Rentals Contract – Resource pack on intranet • Nimbus III – alternating airflow, has heel guard • Breeze – low air loss, light weight patients • Aura cushion • Consider when to step down!
    37. 37. Observation / Skin Assessment © Mark Collier
    38. 38. Prevention and Management Skin Inspection • At least daily, frequency will depend on vulnerability and condition of patient • Pay particular attention to: – Areas of healed ulceration – Bony prominences • Look for – Discolouration – Redness that doesn’t blanche with light pressure – Blisters – Localised heat – Localised oedema
    39. 39. Risk Assessment Tools NICE Guideline No.7 Pressure Ulcer Prevention ‘Whilst there is little evidence to support one tool over another, there is evidence to suggest that an assessment process that incorporates a risk assessment tool improves the patients outcomes’ Which one do we use? WATERLOW (2005)
    40. 40. Prevention and Management Positioning • Regular repositioning to avoid pressure on bony prominences and existing pressure ulcers • Turning/30 degree tilt • Avoid direct contact between bony prominences to avoid friction and shear – consider use of pillows • Consider – Seating – Spinal injuries – Bariatric patients
    41. 41. Prevention and Management • Use of appropriate patient support surfaces • Skin assessment and good hygiene • Evidence based moving and handling practice • Nutrition • Hydration • Incontinence
    42. 42. Categories (Grading) of Pressure Ulcers: GRADE 1 GRADE 2 GRADE 3 GRADE 4 © Mark Collier
    43. 43. Pressure Ulcer Categories Category 1 • Non-blanchable hyperaemia (of intact skin) • Discolouration of the skin • Warmth • Oedema • Hardening
    44. 44. Pressure Ulcer Categories Category 2 • Partial thickness skin loss or damage involving the epidermis andor the dermis. • The ulcer is superficial and presents clinically as an abrasion or a blister.
    45. 45. Pressure Ulcer Categories Category 3 • Full thickness skin loss involving damage to or necrosis of subcutaneous tissue. • This may extend down to but not through the underlying fascia.
    46. 46. Pressure Ulcer Categories Category 4 • Extensive destruction and tissue necrosis or damage to bone, muscle or supporting structures with or without full thickness skin loss
    47. 47. Deep Tissue Injury • May appear as a purple, deep bruise, often mistaken for a Grade 1 pressure ulcer • Skin is intact • Occur over bony prominences • Tissue damage that occurs from the inside out • May quickly progress to Grade 3 / 4 pressure ulcers
    48. 48. © Mark Collier
    49. 49. Guidelines within ULHT for…. • Pressure Ulcer Prevention • Equipment Provision (Support Surfaces) • Pressure Ulcer reporting (PUNT) • Pressure Ulcer Management
    50. 50. Current ULHT Documentation • Patient assessment/admission documentation that incorporates all of the principles of SSKIN • Waterlow Assessment Tool • Tissue Viability Care Pathway • PUNT (e-reporting tool on intranet) • Wound Assessment and Management Chart

    81. 81. The BAPEN Toolkit for Commissioners & Providers 2010 Malnutrition Matters Meeting Quality Standards in Nutritional Care Ailsa Brotherton, Nicola Simmonds and Mike Stroud on behalf of the BAPEN Quality Group
    82. 82. 1) Identify those with malnutrition or risk of malnutrition by screening e.g. BAPEN‟s MUST Tool and assessment as appropriate 2) Implement „individualised‟ care pathways for the malnourished and those at risk, appropriate to the care setting 3) Provide training for all care staff on the importance of nutritional care appropriate to setting, profession and responsibilities 4) Ensure multidisciplinary structures to manage and monitor nutritional care ...but we struggle to deliver these reliably
    83. 83.  Reliability is not about what clinical care should be given  Reliability is about the process of ensuring patients get best care consistently „Every patient, every setting, every day‟
    84. 84. Local Improvement: Using standards and guidelines to drive quality improvements in nutritional care •Use the BAPEN toolkit which simplifies the plethora of standards and guidelines for improving nutritional care • Design systems based on the four tenets of nutritional care • Embed good nutritional care into everyday work flow • Use evidence based tools and e-learning to support front line staff • Work across organisational boundaries to ensure seamless nutritional care • Ensure Trust Board Level engagement •Identify a BAPEN rep in your organization
