Nurse Shortlisted in Nursing Times Award


Congratulations to Jill Holland, Staff Nurse, Maynard Sinclair Ward, Ulster Hospital on being shortlisted in the Nursing Times Awards in Patient Safety Category for her project 'Improving Safety through the Bedside Handover'.

This is a fantastic project bringing patient handover to the bedside instead of being behind closed doors in an office which has traditionally been the case. There is now more interaction with parents and patients, and questions can now be asked to clarify any issues. Oncoming nurses starting their shift are now fully briefed at the bedside and parents are now fully informed with regards to their child's care in a safe efficient and timely manner.
