Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

This chat is guest hosted by @derekfisher2907

Everyone knows and realise that working on a hospital ward, no matter what the ward is, can be a very busy, hectic and a rushing around job.

Every nurse and member of staff have a role to play and they all do their part brilliantly. They have patients to attend to who are in dire need of medical attention. They need to do paperwork and have countless tasks to perform whilst on duty.

Now just for one moment put yourself in the patient’s place. You are in pain or in a medically unfit state and you require medical help asap. You have been waiting in A&E forever, I won’t go into that issue, but know you are on a ward. Its noisy and its hectic. You need help but the staff do what they can and when they can They are clearly stretched. However, that’s not your problem, you need help now. They come and see to your needs and make you as comfortable as possible and care for you as much as they can. But hold on a minute, they are being called all over the place and quite often to in emergency, so they can’t physically be with you all the time. This leaves you in limbo and in a pickle. Should you complain or should you just ride it out? Hard question to answer from a patients point of view.

Personally I fully appreciate their position but equally, for obvious reasons, I understand it from the staff’s position.

Now I would like you imagine it from the position of a patient who has dementia. They are confused and totally disorientated, Taken out of their comfort zone so for them it’s another planet. Its noisy and busy with rushing around staff carrying out their duties. The person with dementia is in pain or has another medical reason for being in hospital. All of the aforementioned compounds the problem for them. They don’t understand what’s going on.

They would like someone to spend just a little time with them and sit and listen to what they have to say and explain the situation to them calmly. To explain the commotion of a busy ward. To reassure and to support emotionally.

Of course there is always families and friends to have around but are they there on site 24/7?  Please see Johns campaign on the net.

My message here is this, those living with dementia need just a little of your time to show them empathy beyond the medical side of things. I appreciate that your time as staff on a ward is taken up from start to finish with nursing and medical care, I have said this very thing earlier on in this blog. I feel that a dedicated dementia nurse be on hand for each floor/ each ward or possibly for more than one ward. I feel that dementia training should be mandatory to  all nurses at some point in their early career.

Do you have the time to sit with someone with dementia for a few minutes now and then? Would you know what to say to that person?

I am open to suggestions and viewpoints and my mind set is not set in stone. I’m flexible and I’m listening.


This #WeNurses discussion aims to ask the following questions:

  • What one word comes into your mind when you think of dementia?
  • Have you had any formal training in dementia care and if so who by?
  • Has your ward ever had a good or bad experience with a patient living with dementia?
  • What is your opinion of a quiet area for those with dementia and is this a possibility on your ward?
  • What are your feelings about open visiting and people with dementia?
  • What will you take away from tonight’s chat?
