Going for gold

THE Intensive Care Unit, Ward 39, Ward 26, Ward 11 at York Hospital (pictured) and Lloyd Ward at Bridlington are celebrating after achieving ‘Gold’ standard against the Trust’s Ward Accreditation Tool - awarded for scores of 95 percent and above.

The Tool, launched in November 2016 following a successful pilot, has 10 sections which have been developed to include specific aspects of ward care - such as nutrition and hydration, falls, dementia and patient experience.

The results help the Trust understand where practice is of a very high standard, as well as helping teams understand where wards may need some support to achieve the standards set.

Presenting the awards, Beverley Geary, Chief Nurse said:  “In the last year we have audited all 40 wards across the Trust and five have achieved the gold standard.

“The gold standard is extremely difficult to achieve and, as such, is a significant achievement.  Achieving this standard provides assurance that the care being delivered on these wards is of a very high standard.

Beverley added: “I pass on my heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the teams involved in attaining such a high standard.”
