  • Nurses worried by plans for liberty protection safeguards

    Nurses worried by plans for liberty protection safeguards

    10.12.19 An NHS acute trust safeguarding adviser has told Nursing Times magazine that she is “horrified” by impending changes to the deprivation of liberty safeguards (DoLS). DoLS are due to be replaced with a new system of liberty protection safeguards (LPS) in October 2020, but there are particular concerns that nurses will be ill-prepared for the changes. LPS will extend safeguards, where someone who lacks capacity is deprived of their liberty, to a wider range of settings and are supposed to be simpler than DoLS. Budgets have been set aside to train doctors and social workers on the new system but not nurses, according to Nursing Times.

    Age UK analysis shows 2.5m lost hospital bed days

    09.12.19 Some new number-crunching by Age UK indicates that social care-related delayed discharges from hospital have led to 2.5 million lost bed days since the last general election and cost the NHS £587 million. Although medically fit to be discharged, people were having to stay in hospital beds at a cost of £640,000 a day because social care arrangements could not be made at the right time, Age UK said. “The human cost is arguably even greater,” said charity director Caroline Abrahams, “with many older people finding [delayed discharges] mean their recovery and rehabilitation is seriously delayed or in the worst cases put out of reach altogether.”
