Not nice weather today, but out and about this morning in the community delivering foot care.

This afternoon we have been working on our E-Register. We know how important it is to get spellings right for names on certificates. So, to help us out, we are going to trial our E-Register.

If it doesn't work, we will go back to good old paper and pen 😊

What a great day in Huddersfield covering Nurse Verification of Expected Death, Injections & Syringe Drivers and Epilepsy & Buccal Midazolam. 
It's always nice to hear at the end of a long day of clinical training "Thank you, I really enjoyed today"

It was also a great mix of nurses today, with me from the north east, and two other homes in attendance from Huddersfield and near Sheffield...it was interesting and a big eye opener for everyone to see how different polices and procedures can be from area to area. 
Although a nurse can be competent in an area, such as syringe drivers, verification of expected death...it shows the importance for nurses to always check local policy and procedure, to minimise the risk of being on the wrong side of a Safeguarding-interesting day.

So, today we were in Blyth, delivering an Emergency First Aid at Work Course (EFAW). When I asked this fantastic group, if anyone had a first aid kit, and someone replied "I've got some Sudocrem", I had an idea how this course was going to pan out...fun!! Over 6 hrs of emergency first aid training, and the humour and paricipation from this group was infectious. We covered dressings, drowning, first aid kits, defibs, CPR not just for adults, but also babies and children, unusual for many EFAW courses, but not this one, and of course the Lifevac, everyone loving the lifevac and seeing the benefits of this device in a care home setting.

Dont't beleive we had a busy, but enjoyable day? Then check out the feedback..."excellent course...I liked everything...I learned a lot...really enjoyed this course...very informative...made it all clear...really enjoyable...a good trainer...thank you for a good session"

Enjoy using your new skills

So, while the rest of the office relaxes over the weekend, we use the time and space to cover Moving and Positioning and Basic Life Support today.

Great bunch of care staff in attendance today. Great participation, and loving the Lifevac, which nobody had come across before.

And what did they think of the courses? "Very good...it was eye opening...trainer explained very well...trainer was well experienced...very informative...the presentation was explicit...okay to ask lots of questions" 
Thanks for the kind comments, even though feeling rotten as suffering with the man 'flu today πŸ˜‰

Thank you so much for the donation made tonight, which we will be sending to the Blood Bikers (BloodRun EVS). We would also like to dedicate this evenings session to our dear friend,  Registered Nurse Glynis Wadsworth, who was sadly taken too soon.

Since then, we have delivered this course to a futher two schools, and we have another three schools to visit this year.

So, thank you Glynis, rest in peace.

Well, even after a 6hr, 350 mile round trip today, I am still smiling.

What an amazing day we have had at Bluebird Care. PEG awareness training, with simulation, and clinical competency assessments, all in one day. Been a long day, but so worth it.

The perfect combination for training...theory, simulation and actual clinical competency assessments with patients.

What a wonderful team at Bluebird Care Bury, made to feel so welcome. THANK YOU for an amazing day.

Nice to recieve this through the post today. 
Shame we didn't win, but those who did were all worthy winners. We were so pleased to have even been shortlisted and to have made the finals.

Inspired us to do even more next year.

Nice little foot care session this morning in Morpeth.

Using disposable, single use foot care packs means we can pass on the savings to you.

Always rewarding when you have someone complaining of painful feet, and after 30 minutes the pain was resolved, only needing a good cut and appropriate filing.

Was even offered a tip, as this gentleman was so happy to have the pain taken away, and couldn't believe he got this service for the price he did. No tip required, no hidden charges, just pleased to be able to help.

Not bad for a tenna... Get in touch if you have trouble with your feet, or you just needs them nails cut.
