Yellow Lanyards are Going to Make Nurses who have Advanced Respiratory Skills Easy to Stand Out

Staff who have advanced respiratory care skills are now sporting yellow lanyards. This is being done at one trust and it is completely designed to help nurses deal with those who have breathing difficulties. The move is part of the Gloucestershire Hospital Trust response to the outbreak of Covid-19 which is a respiratory illness. Healthcare workers are also being given additional care and training as well to help them deal with the outbreak.

Online Learning Package

An online package is has been developed by clinicians to makes sure that more nurses and staff have the skills they need to actively care for people who have these kinds of issues. The training package which was put together in 48 hours contains all of the information that people need to try and take care of those around them. The lanyard is very eye-catching, and it comes with the words respiratory skills printed onto the tape. This idea comes from Craig Bradley who is the associate chief nurse.

The Lanyard

The lanyard has been developed as the result of the Covid-19 response. The staff who may be asked about the respiratory patients can easily identify colleagues who have the experience needed to get the job done. It also means that those who are coming from a nurse agency or even a nursing recruitment agency will benefit from this if they are not familiar with the staff who they are working with.
Gloucestershire Hospitals have said that over 200 people are going to be wearing the lanyard in the next few days and that healthcare workers need to be prepared for everything that is going to come their way. If they aren’t then this could mean a disaster for the future.
