Fifteen Minute Care Visits

The pressure is still on the government to do something about the scandal of fifteen minute care visits.

I know when I was student nurse I was taught to introduce myself, explain what I was going to do, make sure the person understood, and consented !!

As a minimum!!!

So fifteen minutes is dangerously inadequate in my professional opinion.

Read the excellent article in the Guardian. A care worker describes her experience if trying to deliver care in fifteen minutes.
