Senior Staff Nurse For Quality in the Emergency Department
The role of the Senior Staff Nurse for Quality in the Emergency Department is to improve the services and quality of care for all of our patients and their families who we care for.
The Senior Staff Nurse for Quality will maintain robust records of education and training that occurs within their area of responsibility. This evidence can be requested by visiting bodies such as the Care Quality Commission. The team monitor Clinical Standards and provide training and education to underpin safe delivery of health care.
The Emergency Department at the UHNM has enrolled
on to the internationally recognised Excellence in Practice Accreditation Scheme
(EPAS). This is a project which encourages the demonstration of excellence in
the delivery of care within the Emergency Department. We are the first Emergency
Department nationally to apply for this accreditation.
The Emergency Department team have used a
multi-disciplinary and team-building approach to demonstrate best practice
against the six standards set out in the EPAS project.
The scheme has enabled the Emergency Department
team to disseminate its excellent care, innovations and pioneering work to a
wider audience. We are proud of the service that we deliver and are excited to
receive local, national and international recognition.
