Day 93: “I am the one and only” Chesney Hawkes

Today’s blog isn’t about my Chesney Hawkes incident, but now I’ve got your attention…

This afternoon I met with the Director of Nursing of our main acute hospital provider.  At the start of our meeting I joined her daily, afternoon bed management meeting where operational and nursing staff review the current situation in the hospital and look at staffing for evening, over-night and into the next day.

This is one of many ways in which the hospital manages the pressures at this busiest period of the year.  Throughout this process privacy, dignity and quality of service to patients is paramount.
