Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

We recognise the impact that a long stay in hospital can have on families and the importance of maintaining strong communication.  Our ward staff are keeping in touch with patients’ next of kin directly and our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can help pass on personal messages from family and friends.

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

BEDVIEW

Bedview is the Trust’s Bed Management and Discharge Management tool; it also supports Nursing and Doctor’s handover. The system is used by a wide range of staff including nursing, admin, operational management and external partners (Social Care, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists).

Bedview receives the latest information around a Patient’s Episode from PAS (i.e. location). Users enter additional information for the patient’s journey, allowing the patient to be managed effectively through their pathway. This information includes the patient status and indicators (i.e. falls risk), expected discharge date (EDD) and discharge planning notes.

The data collected within Bedview allows the Operational Centre to make informed decisions at a Trust level. This information would include the number of discharges planned for each day or patients medically fit to leave hospital but waiting on additional elements.

 

Bedview - AMU TakeList

The TakeList is an extension of the Bedview functionality and allows patients to be managed from first referral (GP Call or Emergency Department) to their departure from AMU. The system is used by all staff within AMU from reception to consultant; functionality includes the ability to record:

  • Consultant assessment and speciality triage
  • Expected discharge date (EDD)
  • Current patient status i.e. going today
