"management of psych care "
Posted by midnight (as ),
Having been an in-patient at Carleton Clinic Carlisle and West Cumberland Whitehaven (both under Cumbria Partnership Trust) its easy to compare the standards of care
At Carleton you have a named nurse, in patient care plan, team of occupational health people to engage you in activities such as cooking, gardening, art, you have regular 1:1's with a nurse each shift. None of the above and more apply to West Cumberland.
During a public consultation I voiced my concerns to an audience of 200 and executive members of the partnership who told me I must have misjudged the situation.
On reflection after nearly a dozen in-patient stays I think I have a reasonable understanding of the differences in the way the 2 wards run at the shop floor level. If the basics were carried out at West Cumberland I think it would go a long way towards solving the problem
