Great idea, but what about those who work in care homes as nurses and careers?
I’m sure they’ve will have done more hands on work than the appointments clerks at outpatients.
COVID-19 is going to go through care homes like a tsunami.
Nothing for them...
Don't care homes come under NHS purview? Also it says that the details haven't been confirmed yet, so no need to get overly cynical, just yet
Nope, they are mainly private providers with resident care funded by DHSC. The same goes for hospices. It’s unlikely that residents will be given a ‘good’ bed in an overworked NHS unit and will therefore be allowed a “natural death”.
Mrs Uke is a sister in a nursing care home 50 residents a third with dementia, and is shitting bricks about what is coming. These are long term patients so she knows them, their families etc.
It’s also staffed by more of those “unskilled” types who suddenly people seem to realise have actually kept our worlds going...
Absolutely agree with this. Always they bang on about NHS staff (and quite rightly so) but the carers who work in private nursing home and those that go to people’s homes on a daily basis supporting the elderly and a great many “at risk” patients really do need to be called out more as the absolute angels they mostly are - esp. as they get paid a pittance to do jobs which are actually a damn sight more important than a great many other jobs anywhere. Just imagine what they have to do every day in terms of not only the care provided but the extra bits added on top now to try and maintain as much protection for their “patients” as well as themselves and their families.
