SOZ WE’RE LATE. TYNWALD AND ALL THAT

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL NURSES DAY

WELCOME BACK CATH QUILLIAM – DIRECTOR OF NURSING 

NUMBERS

  • 3853 TESTS

  • 3818 CONCLUDED TESTS

  • 35 OUTSTANDING TESTS

  • 331 CONFIRMED CASES

  • 1 NEW CASE

  • 36 ACTIVE CASES

NURSES ARE NORMALLY SEEN AS JUST KIND AND PATIENT BUT PERCEPTIONS HAVE CHANGED

ASHY MADE A COMPARISON TO NURSES AND BEING AT WAR

  • THEY’RE FRONTLINE TROOPS IN BATTLE WITH THIS VIRUS 

  • PPE IS THEIR DEFENCE

  • DETERMINATION IS THEIR WEAPON

HEALTHCARE WORKERS ARE NOW RECOGNISED FOR THEIR HARD WORK, COURAGE, PERSEVERANCE, DETERMINATION AND PROFESSIONALISM

THERE HAS BEEN INCREASED AWARENESS OF THEIR EXPERTISE AND HOW THEY’VE RISEN TO UNPRECEDENTED CHALLENGE

WE ADMIRE, RESPECT AND THANK YOU

OVER TO YOU CATH

FLORENCE WAS MORE THAN THE LADY WITH THE LAMP

SHE WAS COMMITTED, CARED AND HAS COMPASSION

SHE WAS A SMART GAL, LOVED STATS – RECOGNISED AS ONE OF THE MOST STATISTICIANS

SHE WAS DRIVEN BY DATA AND CAMPAIGNED FOR RESOURCES TO SOLVE PROBLEMS THEM

SHE NOTICED SOLDIERS WERE DYING FROM PREVENTABLE DISESES CAUSED BY DODGY WATER, NOT THEIR WOUNDS

SHE PIONEERED SOCIAL REFORMS AND MODERN NURSING

SHE IMPROVED  LIVING STANDARDS AND BETTER SANITATION

SHE PRESENTED THE RESULTS OF DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS

SHE WAS A FAN OF A GRAPH

OUR RESPONSE TO THIS VIRUS IS DRIVEN BY DATA TOO 

LET’S HEAR IT FOR FLO AND THE IMPACT SHE HAD, IT’S ONE THAT’S SERVING US WELL NOW

OUR NURSES ARE LIKE FLO 

THIS YEAR IS THE YEAR OF THE NURSE AND MIDWIFE

THE IDEA WAS TO CELEBRATE THE PROFESSIONS AND INCREASE RECRUITMENT INTO THE PROFESSION BUT LOTS OF EVENTS FOR THIS HAVE BEEN DISRUPTED DUE TO THE RONA

THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST CHALLENGE OF MOST NURSES IN THEIR CAREERS

POSITIVES TO HAVE COME OUT OF ALL THIS

  • WE’VE STEPPED UP TO THIS CHALLENGE

  • OVERCOME OBSTACLES

  • OUTSTANDING ADAPTABILITY HAS BEEN SHOWN

  • THE CHALLENGE HAS MADE US STRONGER

  • THERE HAVE BEEN GOOD TIMES

  • WE LOVE THE CLAPS 

NURSES DON’T WANT TO BE SEEN AS HEROES THEY WANT TO BE SEEN AS PROFESSIONALS 

THEY HAVE A DESIRE TO HELP AND THEY WILL DO WHAT IS NEEDED

THIS IS A YEAR WE WON’T FORGET

ASHY

BIG THANKS TO ALL THE HEALTH PROFESSIONALS 

QUESTIONS

Ashy

THERE IS BALANCE TO BE ACHIEVED IN OPENING BACK UP HEALTH SERVICES

ASHY – ‘GAHD I’M SO CAUTIOUS’

INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY AT ABBOTSWOOD

DIFFERENT BODIES INVOLVES SO THAT’S WHY THEY’VE BEEN REFERRED TO AS PLURAL

FINAL REPORT WILL BE MADE PUBLIC

ASHY IS FAR FROM HAPPY ABOUT ABBOTSWOOD RESIDENTS BEING MOVED. NOT AN IDEAL SITUATION BUT ABIDING BY DUTY OF CARE

ERADICATION OF RONA ON THE IOM IS A DREAM TBF 

EVERYONE ONE OF US WOULD NEED TO BE LOCKED UP FOR 21 DAYS – NOTHING COMING IN, NOTHING GOING OUT – IT’S JUST NOT PRACTICAL

WE’RE NOT HERE BY CHANCE, WE’RE HERE BECAUSE OF OUR ACTIONS

I KNOW IT’S FRUSTRATING BUT IT HAS TO BE DONE TO ENSURE NO SECOND WAVE

TIM S/O TO NURSES 

3FM – THANKS TO NURSES

CATH 

THERE’S LOTS OF SUPPORT FOR NURSES

EMBARGO ON THEIR ANNUAL LEAVE HAS BEEN LIFTED

STUDENT NURSE TRAINING IS BACK UP AND RUNNING

ASHY

COMMUNICATION IS KEY FOR KEEPING PUBLIC ON SIDE

ASHY CAN’T SPECULATE ON ABBOTSWOOD SO PLZ DON’T ASK HIM TO

PAUL HAS BEEN DOWN ABBOTSWOOD WATCHING RESIDENTS MOVING OUT – WEIRD FLEX BUT OK

THERE HAVE BEEN LOTS OF COMMS WITH ABBOTSWOOD – “I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHAT I SAY BECAUSE OF THE INVESTIGATIONS(S), PAUL”

OWNERS CAN CHALLENGE THE SUSPENSION OF THEIR LICENCE IF THEY WANT

LEASE WAS NOT VALUE FOR MONEY FOR TAX PAYER

THERE’S NO RUSH ON INVESTIGATIONS, THEY’LL BE COMPLETED IN DUE COURSE

OUR PPE IS TESTED AND IS UP TO GRADE 

SAFETY OF STAFF IS MOST IMPORTANT THING

CATH 

SECOND WAVE IS POSSIBLE IF WE DON’T FOLLOW GOV ADVICE – WE ARE PREPARED BUT THERE IS A THRESHOLD

ASHY

THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO GET A BALANCE

WE CAN’T GET COMPLACENT – IT’S OUR GREATEST RISK ATM

TIM – WHAT’S THE POINT IN TYNWALD IF NO ONE CAN HAVE THEIR SAY?

ASHY – SCRUTINY PERIOD HAS BEEN REDUCED. THERE ARE DISCUSSIONS STILL HAPPENING

TIM – STATE OF EMERGENCY, WILL IT BE EXTENDED PAST FRIDAY?

ASHY – I EXPECT SO, YEAH. WE HAVE A LOT TO PREPARE FOR WHEN IT’S FINISHED

PAUL – NO ONE ELSE FANCY THIS ONE? OK, GUESS I’LL ASK THEN … WHO’S THE NEW CASE?

ASHY – I DON’T HAVE FULL DETAILS BUT IT’S A COMMUNITY CASE

DHSC DON’T SUPPLY PPE FOR PRIVATE BUSINESS IN GENERAL IN THE ECONOMY. WE WILL OFFER TO DENTISTS AT COST 

BACK TO FLO – HAPPY INTERNATIONAL NURSES DAY AND HAPPY YEAR OF THE NURSE (AND MIDWIDE)
