    Hospitals are still banning patients from having bedside visitors in ‘immoral’ Covid restrictions. Last night, MPs, patient groups and campaigners criticised the postcode lottery that means some frail patients are still denied the support of loved ones. Nine trusts continue to impose total bans on any visitors for some patients, The Mail on Sunday has found. Almost half of trusts maintain policies so strict that they flaunt NHS England’s guidance that patients should be allowed at least two visitors a day. Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, Sandwell and West Bir

    Overstretched hospitals are stopping routine Covid tests for new patients as “brutal” pressures mount on doctors and nurses, The Independent understands. On Monday there were 1,702 new Covid admissions to hospitals in England as of 9 April – with 16,442 positive patients occupying beds – the NHS leaders warn their ability to tackle the backlog in planned care is at risk. Despite pleas from NHS chiefs to measures such as mask-wearing back into force, ministers said there were no plans to change guidance. The Independent understands at least two major hospitals, in Newcastle and Y

    Patients in nine hospitals in Ireland were often treated in the wrong places, sometimes corridors, in situations where it was “unclear” who was supposed to be providing their care, a clinical review has found. It warned of the potential for people to receive inappropriate specialist input and recommended specific wards be used to avoid so-called “safari rounds” where consultants must seek out scattered patients. The independent review team consisted of clinical and management experts from Scotland and England who undertook a programme of visits between August and November, 2019.

    Two national reviews are taking place into hospital discharge policy, it has emerged, amid major changes to funding and legislation. One review, led by the Department of Health and Social Care, is developing discharge policy for once the Health and Care Bill comes into force; and a second is reviewing the “clinical criteria to reside”. Delayed discharge has been a major problem in the acute and emergency care system this winter, with the number of long-staying patients significantly up on previous years. It has been blamed for long patient waits for ambulances, to get into emergency

    An inspection of a county's urgent and emergency services found delays were caused by a lack of empty beds and prolonged waiting times. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected Gloucestershire emergency care services in November and December. The report found staff worked well in challenging circumstances but the CQC said pressures on workers across the system needed addressing. Dr Jeremy Welch said: "The system is being stretched and we need to adapt." CQC deputy chief inspector for hospitals, Nigel Acheson, said: "We found the system to be complicated. As a result, sta

    Medication delays can risk life-threatening complications for patients with Parkinson's disease, including choking, aspiration pneumonia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome. In 2016, the spouse of a patient with Parkinson's disease wrote to LTHT to highlight that multiple medication delays and omissions had occurred during his recent admission. In response, LTHT formed a multidisciplinary quality improvement Collaborative to ensure patients with Parkinson's disease received their medication on time. Thanks to the project, between January 2016 and June 2020: mean delays in the time

    Findings Oral paracetamol is a widely used medication that has few side effects for most people. There is limited data on how oral paracetamol affects adults with low bodyweight. Although liver toxicity is a recognised risk with oral paracetamol, evidence regarding the relationship between low bodyweight and the risk of liver toxicity is unclear. Two independent bodies are contracted to provide oral paracetamol prescribing guidance for clinicians. The information provided is not consistent. There is potential for electronic prescribing and medication administrati

    The NHS plans to treat up to 25,000 hospital patients at home in “virtual wards” to help clear the backlog caused by the pandemic, the “living with Covid” plan has revealed.

Consultants or GPs will review patients daily via digital platforms and phone calls. In some cases, patients will be provided with a wearable device to continuously monitor and report their vital signs. The NHS has set a national target of 40 to 50 virtual beds per 100,000 pop

    Redefining the terms ‘visitor’ and ‘visiting’ When I used to see my husband, wherever he was, I KNEW that I was NOT a ‘visitor’ – as a ‘visitor’ I would have gone out of kindness, with a drink, or fruit or whatever, but I was his wife and partner and best friend, and the one who had been caring ABOUT him for the last 7 years, until we both simply buckled. I was there to observe, to pick up on issues, to ask about medication, to hold his hand, to do a crossword, to listen to music, to ensure he was hydrated, to point out food preferences, and also to ask the staff to familiarise themse
