    “Often you go into hospital with something unrelated to your Parkinson’s but then your Parkinson’s gets worse due to it not being managed properly.” Carole (person living with Parkinson’s) Sadly, research shows that 63% of people living with Parkinson’s don’t always receive their medication on time when staying in hospital. This can seriously impact their recovery. They may not be able to move, get out of bed, swallow, walk or talk. Some people may never recover and may permanently lose their ability to walk, talk or worse. In worst case scenarios, the withdrawal of Parkinson’s medication

    Logan Giesbrecht left his dream job as an emergency room nurse when the mental health strain of an understaffed department became unbearable, even before the pandemic's fourth wave hit and anti-vaccination protesters began gathering outside hospitals. “The biggest frustration, and what I'm taking home from work, was basically doing the job of more than one nurse,” said Giesbrecht, who feared low staffing levels would risk patient safety. He quit working at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, Canada, last April. Representatives for nurses around the country are calling on the fede

There are very comprehensive reports on the numbers if you need details on the size of the challenge.[1] We know the link between anxiety, stress, burnout of staff and poorer patient safety. So here are some thoughts on what we can do: 1. Do be 100% clear

    A new study has found night shifts are "significantly associated" with health issues related to the heart, particularly atrial fibrillation, finding that women may be at a greater risk. The research, published in the European Heart Journal also found working night shifts is linked to an increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). “Night shift exposure also increased the risk of CHD (coronary heart disease) but not stroke or HF (heart failure).

    Nursing and maternity staff have reported that they are unable to have water with them whilst working, meaning some are unable to drink water for 12 hours due to work pressures. The Royal College of Midwives in updated guidance are calling for "common sense" from NHS trusts and boards on staff access to water and other drinks, particularly as staff are having to wear more PPE than before the pandemic began.
