General surgery ward B5 gets glowing praise

26 Aug 2011 16:37:52

Staff on the General Surgery Ward (B5) at Rotherham Hospital recently welcomed a fantastic result following a Ward Nursing Accreditation System inspection. 

The delighted team on Ward B5 were complimented on various aspects including their patient communication, ward cleanliness, nutrition and their shift leadership. As part of the feedback, it was highlighted that staff on the ward provided a calm and focused approach in what is a very busy environment. 

The unannounced visits measure standards on a traffic light system and are awarded red, amber or green depending on the observations made by visiting inspectors. 

Samantha Burgin, General Surgery Ward Manager said: “I am very proud of the feedback we have received and this is a credit to all of the team. Since we started taking part in the practice review over 18 months ago, our ward has achieved two ‘green’ results. We are now working towards achieving a third ‘green’ and we believe our standards will be rewarded once again which will enable us to apply for Ward Foundation Status.” 

Ward Foundation Status gives greater control to individual wards who show consistant excellence and improvement
