Can anyone see anything wrong with the following suggestion(to identify cleaned equipment)-

Mark the equipment with a water soluble ink.
All Trusts have a decontamination policy. This would be an easy way of identifying depts/wards that require additional training..simple.

I'm sure you aren't joking -- but you have to be joking....!

Is that actually printed somewhere?

Sorry - it just appeared (to me) that you were quoting a document.
My mistake.

It's the end of a week of 'Monday morning feelings', I just thought that any attempt to help our highly trained nursing staff to perform their duties to Trust Policy would benefit us all..I'm too helpful, I know.

I think (based on what i see here) that lack of nurses, and lack of time to train, and lack of trainers, all make the problem worse.

Hopefully, the money being spent by the labour party on the NHS will be properly spent to give the NHS the resources we need.

Hmmm!

From where I'm sat we just seem to be getting back the money we lost somewhere between last financial year and this one !

Something to do with the PCTs I believe, but don't quote me on that. eek


Today is the day you worried about yesterday - and all is well !

Politics & religion, 2 topics guaranteed to get a response or two.

I'm not going to add any more about the possibilities of encountering the odd bit of equipment that might have a spot of grime on it.. mad

We've started raising internal incident reports when we find equipment has not been cleaned.
(Name and Shame) We back this up with digital photographs.

It seems to have reduced the problem significantly, but it has not gone away completely. rolleyes
