Nurses are a crucial part of care across a wide range of sectors, with patients and other professionals often reliant on their expertise. That’s why the Professional Records Standard Body (PRSB) has been asked to develop a new nursing standard by NHSx for use across all the different health and social care settings.
The standard aims to improve quality and safety of care in key nurse-led areas, including care planning. It will reflect best practice and standardise documentation across different nursing settings, to free nurses and give them more time to care. For example, it will standardise information that a district nurse in a care home setting can access and share in the same way as a mental health or hospital nurse, with a focus on the person’s overall wellbeing.
