    Years ago I remember never being allowed a drink at the desk. It was against infection control is what I was told. however I do remember breaking the rules and then promptly spilling the drink across the keyboard 🤦🏼‍♀️ As an outreach nurse , we are travellers around the hospital. I know where all the water stations are in each department - the trouble is that there are sometimes a lack of cups. Disposable cups are not environmentally friendly , however if you are a HCP that moves around wards you can’t always take a bottle with you - especially if you are running to an

    We have just come out of a second lockdown. This time my experiences working in the NHS are very different from the first lockdown back in March 2020.

    Background: Acute kidney injury (AKI) in critically ill patients is multifactorial. There is little reliable UK data on the incidence and outcomes of patients with COVID-19 and AKI outside the ICU. At this stage we do not have a full understanding of the aetiology of AKI in COVID-19 and the pathogenic role of systemic inflammation, hypovolaemia or other COVID-19 related pathology (such as thrombotic microangiopathy) in its genesis. Volume status is critical in reducing the incidence of AKI but the balance between respiratory and kidney function can be challenging.
