After spending the approx 10 weeks visting everyday wards 4 and 15. I seemed to be seeing different nurses,and doctors,practically everyday, Asking questions of medical staff,was invariably met with, " I've only just come on this ward/ bay". I include sisters/ nurse in charge, in this statement, For short term patients,it's probably not a problem, But with long term patients, day to day monitoring did not seem to exist.
Do ward managers consider,continuity,when allocating staff, ?
