So this blog was an idea formed after a discussion in the staff coffee room.
As a nurse specialist we am being told that we do not communicate new information about the day to day practicalities of caring for a patient well enough.
No longer does it work to pass on information verbally as that nurse may not see all the other nurses. A poster gets lost in the field of paper on the staff room wall. An email relies on members of staff finding a computer and logging on to work emails.
However, most nurses will access Facebook and the internet.
So the plan is for a regular blog from the surgical specialist nurses about Bums, Bags and Tubes.
Enjoy and we hope this is of use and that you will keep checking…..
