I am mainly interested in staffing for general ward beds, but please provide all the rota data you have for the hospital

 

You may wish to present this as a series of numbers and how many were on shift at this time as I appreciate that rotas are complicated and differ from hospital to hospital.

 

Please see how another hospital trust in the south presented this data, you may wish to do something similar, or if you hold the data differently, please present it in the way you hold it. I’m happy to accept excel spread sheets and talk to your hospital directly if they need some level of interpretation.

1000 – 1430 (7 doctors = 3 junior/ Foundation, 3 speciality registrars, 1 consultant)

Etc

(timing / doctor breakdown continues until Sunday evening)

Please provide the following information. I would like three figures for each question (2010, 2011 and 2012 financial years):

 

1. How many elective operations have you performed in each financial year since April 2010?

Response -   

2010-11 = 9753

2011-12 = 9354

2. For each of the last three financial years please provide the number of elective operations which were cancelled last minute for non-clinical reasons, because of a high number of emergency admissions.

Response -   

2010-11 = 11

2011-12 = 28

2012-13 = 66

 

3. Please explain which non-clinical reasons you consider to be indicators of high emergency admissions (for examples, please see the list below).

Response -

- No beds are available on the ward.     

- No critical care beds are available

 

Please note that we have identified that the options provided by yourself as example responses to this question do not match the question asked. We have therefore responded on the basis that this may have been an error on your behalf and that the question related to the non-clinical reasons for cancelation of operations as opposed to non-clinical reasons for high emergency admissions. If this is not the case may we ask that you contact this team.

 

 

4. For each of the last three financial years, please provide the number of patients who were not operated on within 28 days of a last-minute cancellation of an elective operation.

Response -   

2010-11 = 10

2011-12 = 7

2012-13 = 21

 

5. For each of the last three financial years, how much has the trust spent on sending patients to private providers for operation, having been unable to operate on them within the trust within 28 days?

Response -   

2010-11 = £0

2011-12 = £0

2012-13 = £0

 

6. For each of the last three financial years please advise how many days each hospital was on ‘black alert’ status or the Trust equivalent, due to a high number of emergency admissions. If providing an equivalent definition, please explain what this means.

Response - 0 days.

 

For clarity, please see below the official definitions of ‘last minute’ and ‘non clinical’ and ‘black alert’

 

Last minute:

This means that the hospital cancels an operation:

  • on the day the patient is due to arrive in hospital
  • after the patient has arrived in hospital
  • on the day that the operation or surgery is due to take place

 

Non-clinical reasons:

There are many non-clinical reasons for hospitals cancelling operations:

  • no beds are available on the ward     
  • no critical care beds are available
  • staff are not available, such as the surgeon, anesthetist or operating theatre staff
  • an emergency case had to take priority in the operating theatre
  • operations took longer than expected so the list of operations over-ran
  • some equipment isn't working
  • there has been an administrative error

 

Black Alert:

Black Alert status or the Trust equivalent of its highest ESCALATION LEVELS / ALERT STATUS

FOI13 216

Please provide the following information:

 

I would like information on your organisation’s current uniform policy for nursing staff and healthcare assistants.

 

1. I would like to know the uniform policy for nursing staff by their role, for example, a charge nurse wears a navy dress with a red trim and a red belt, the director of nursing wears a red dress, and a senior healthcare assistant wears a white tunic and blue trousers.

Response - The Dress Code & Uniform Policy applies to all Trust staff and is not limited to Nursing staff and Healthcare Assistants.

 

Please see Appendix D of the attached Dress Code and Uniform Policy.

 

2. Specifically, I would like to know any nursing staff or healthcare assistants wear hats as part of their uniform. If yes, I would like to know when this was introduced and why.

Response - No, nursing staff and healthcare assistants do not wear hats as part of their uniform.

 

3. I would like to know if your director of nursing wears a uniform, and if so, when this was introduced and why.

Response - Yes, the Director of Nursing role has always had a uniform they can wear in clinical practice. The reason for this is that it sets the expectation that nurses wear uniforms, whatever their grade and enables role modelling of best practice (e.g. infection control practice; bare below the elbows; hair up).

 

4. I would like to know what sizes your uniforms come in (for example, sizes 6 to 22 and small, medium, large) and which size is the most requested/ordered.

Response - This differs depending on what style of uniform is ordered.

 

Primarily:-

>Ladies scrubs tops size 6 to 26 / trousers xs to xxl

>Ladies tunics size 76cm to 136cm / trousers size 8 to 28

>Mens scrub top and trousers size xs to xxl

 

Any other size is special order

 

The most ordered sizes are between size 10 and 18.

 

5. I would like to know when the current uniform policy was introduced and the reason(s) for the introduction of the policy. For example, if the change in policy was due to patient feedback, I would like to know what the feedback was.

Response - The current version of the Dress Code and Uniform Policy has been in effect since June 2011, however, a policy has been in place since October 2007. It has been updated when national guidance (e.g. infection control requirements) has been issued and also in 2008 using patient feedback as part of the process – rationalisation of colours and moving to a uniform that hospital staff were less likely to wear in public.  Also reinforcing expectations that uniforms should not be worn in public unless as part of their role (e.g. District Nurses).

 

6. If the current uniform policy for nursing staff and healthcare assistants was introduced since January 2010, I would like to know:

- When it was introduced

- The total cost of providing new uniforms and name badges to nursing staff and

            healthcare assistants due to the change in uniform policy.

- A breakdown of the previous uniform policy for nursing staff and healthcare assistants –

for example, a matron wore a red dress with a navy belt, and so on.

Response - N/A, the policy was introduced prior to January 2010.

 

7. If your uniform policy has not changed since January 2010, I would like to know when it is next up for review, and if there are any plans to change the uniform policy in the next 12 months.

Response - The Dress Code & Uniform Policy is due for review in June 2014, which falls within the next 12 months.

 

FOI13 223

I would like a list including when the claim was made, where the claim was made, details of the claim (i.e. what happened) how much was claimed and whether the money was paid out.

Response - Please see below response as required. Please note that the Isle of Wight NHS Trust is only able to supply data from 1April 2012. May we suggest that you contact the Department of Health for any data preceding this date.

Also I believe I made a mistake in my term- by A&E ward, I in fact mean A&E department.

I am interested in finding out about healthcare support workers and their work with nurses.

 

Please could you provide answers to the following questions within 20 days:

 

1a) Does your organisation run an induction programme for healthcare support workers on Agenda for Change (AfC) bands 2,3 and 4?

Response – Staff are required to undertake local and corporate induction in line with our induction policy.  For healthcare support workers this would require attending a corporate induction and having a local induction in their place of work.

 

1b) If yes, how long is the induction process?

Response – The corporate induction is half a day.  Local induction will depend on the area of work.  A template local induction form is included in the induction policy.

 

2a) Does your organisation require a minimum qualification for healthcare support workers on AfC bands 2, 3 and 4?

Response – Yes – any minimum qualification will be stated on the person specification of the job description.

 

2b) If yes, please state what the requirements are.

Response – NVQ Certificate or Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 2 and 3.

 

3a) Is your director of nursing fully responsible for the recruitment and training of support workers?

The Executive Director of Nursing and Workforce is the Board level Director responsible for Nursing and the Human Resources Department which includes the Resourcing (Recruitment Team).  Recruitment of support workers is the responsibility of the Ward Sister/Charge Nurse and their Operational Managers.  Any training of support workers is approved by their managers and formal training and qualifications are the responsibility of the Development and Training Department which seeks funding on their behalf (unless funded by the department).  All funding needs approval of the employee’s manager.

 

3b) If no, who is?

Response – please see response to 3a.

 

4) What title do you give your support workers? For instance, are they known as nursing assistants, nursing auxiliaries, healthcare assistant or healthcare support worker? Please state their exact title.

Response – Nursing Auxiliaries, Health Care Support Worker, Health Care Assistant, STR Worker (within Mental Health Services).

 

5) How many healthcare support workers did you support to progress into nursing in 2011 and in 2012?

Response – Information not held.

 

5b) How many healthcare support workers do you plan to support into nursing in 2013 and in 2014.

Response – We currently have 6 healthcare support workers undertaking a Foundation Degree in Health and Social care who commenced in January 2013 and this is a 2 year course.  These individuals are completing this course to be able to work as Assistant Practitioners (A4C band 4).  Whether they will continue and apply for a nursing degree course will be their choice.  We are supporting this Foundation Degree course to develop them into Assistant Practitioner roles.

We have a further 4 staff registered to commence the course in January 2014. 

 

5c) Please detail the support you provide.

Response – As stated above, we have developed a Foundation Degree pathway collaboratively with other Organisations in the Wessex Region and Solent University.  This foundation degree is now recognised by the University of Southampton for entry to the second year of their nursing degree courses.

 

Prior to commencing the course they will undertake a ‘bridging the gap’ course to enable them to refresh their study skills, literacy and numeracy (some individuals have not studied since leaving school so this course raises their confidence prior to starting the foundation degree).  We also provide in-house support in addition to that provided by Solent University throughout the duration of the course.

 

6) What percentage of healthcare  support workers (in bands 2, 3 and 4) terminate employment within the first year of working with you? Please provide figures for: 2011 and for 2012

Response –    2011: 0.11%

                        2012: 0.13%

 

7a) Do you have a code of conduct for healthcare support workers or an equivalent?

Response – No.

 

7b)If yes, please provide details of when it was introduced, plus a copy of the document.

Response – n/a

 

7c)If no, do you plan on introducing one in the next 12 months?

Response – a code of conduct is currently being developed by the Widening Participation Group lead by HEW. This is still in draft and has not been published or agreed. 

 

8) Please give details on any other healthcare support worker initiatives you are running or plan to run.

Response – Many of our healthcare support workers undertake an NVQ in Health and Social Care and some top up to a full apprenticeship qualification which involves additional qualifications.  We support leadership development, literacy and numeracy for this staff group and they are also able to apply to attend in-house training provided such as coaching skills, resilience training and many others.
