There’s New Guidance on how Trusts Are Able to Support Nurses during this Pandemic

Trusts have been given a lot of advice on the various steps that they can take to try and look after the mental wellbeing of their staff. They need to address issues which include fatigue, because nurses are now struggling to deal with the crises that has been brought about as the result of Covid-19. It’s important to know that experiencing an outbreak can be unsettling to say the least, so it is vital that people understand this.

The Guidance

Those who work with a nurse agency or even those who are members of a nursing recruitment agency should really know that the guidance has been developed with the input of various trade unions. They are stressing how important it is to try and protect the health of the people and that the wellbeing of the staff needs to be looked at as well. This is critical if the NHS organisations are going to be able to respond to the outbreak to the best of their ability. The pressure on the NHS is going to carry on and now it is becoming even more important that the right strategies are in place. Staff need to be looked after because if they aren’t then they can’t hope to look after other people.

Concerns

There are concerns about the sheer lack of personal protection for nurses and organisations have stated that they need to review this. They need to have a clear and direct process in place so that staff can easily raise their concerns. Staff need to know that they are going to be kept safe and they also need to know that they are going to be given the help they need on a day to day basis.
