    Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic health and care staff have been working in different ways and designing new ways to meet the needs of patients and service users, all while under a huge amount of pressure. This event from the King's Fund will take a look at some examples of those changes and how people working in health and care have been working remotely, flexibly and in an agile way to meet the demands created by the pandemic and to develop new and improved ways of working for the future. Sign up now to hear about: the role of visible, collaborative and inclusive leadership

    Key points Communication between members of the surgical team is an integral component of the prevention of surgical fires. Open delivery of 100% oxygen should be avoided if at all possible for surgery above the xiphoid process. Surgeons usually control the ignition sources, such as electrosurgical units and lasers. Operating theatre nurses or practitioners usually control the fuel sources, such as alcohol-based preparations and surgical drapes. The use of an ignition source in close proximity of an oxidiser-enriched environment creates a high risk for surgical fir

    The authors found that fire occurs when the three elements of the fire triad, fuel, oxidiser and ignition, coincide. Surgical fires are unusual in the absence of an oxygen-enriched atmosphere. The ignition source is most commonly diathermy but lasers carry a relatively greater risk. The majority of fires occur during head and neck surgery. This is due to the presence of oxygen and the extensive use of lasers. The risk of fire can be reduced with an awareness of the risk and good communication. Surgery will always carry a risk of fire. Reducing this risk requires a concerted effort from al

    NHS workers are at breaking point after months of upheaval and high pressure during the coronavirus outbreak with hospital leaders warning the health service is facing a “perfect storm” of workforce shortages and a second wave of COVID-19. In a survey of 140 NHS trust leaders almost all of them said they were worried about their staff suffering burnout ahead of winter. They also sounded the alarm over concerns there had not been enough investment into social care before this winter. NHS Providers, which carried out the survey ahead of its annual conference of hospital leaders, w

    In total, 1742 nurses responded to questions about working conditions on their last shift. The authors found that nearly two-thirds of respondents were demoralised. Nurses were five times more likely to feel demoralised if they reported missed care. A perceived lack of support had nearly the same impact on the level of demoralisation. These findings were reflected in the qualitative findings where registered nurses reported how staffing issues and failures in leadership left them feeling disempowered and demoralised. In order to reduce the negative impact of dissatisfaction and improve re

    The health service lacks the beds, staffing and resources to cope with a serious outbreak of the coronavirus, The Independent has been told by senior doctors and nurses. NHS staff from across the country warned hospitals are already unable to cope, with patients being looked after in spill-over wards and waiting hours for a bed, with one doctor saying it was already a “one in, one out mentality” for intensive care. Other staff reported delays in lab tests, rationing of protective masks and equipment, and a lack of isolation areas for suspected coronavirus patients. Suggestions f

    Hi all, I had a great meeting with @Neal Jones yesterday and in a wide ranging discussion we reflected on design and human factors. I recall some great work many years ago on the redesign of ambulances (that the NPSA contributed to) and wondered what happened to that initative and whether this had developed into designing new hospitals for patient safety. @Neal Jones recalled the DOME (designing out medical error) project http://www.domeproject.org.uk/index.html. This web site is dated 2010 and it seems to have been a three year funded project. Is this innovative approach still 'live?' Does an
