The falls team are running CAS Link Person Training. Although this training is aimed at the link nurses on the wards, there is a lot of valuable information that registered nurses that do bank shifts only, may find useful. See attached registration form and flyer with the dates.
Bank Shift Changes
From Friday 1st June 2018 there will be a more flexible approach to bank shift duration. The new standard duration will be 11 hours but bank staff will also be able to select from a range of shifts up to 11.5 hours based on the clinical areas’ need at that time. When logging onto the Bankstaff EOL system bank staff will see a more varied choice in the length of the available shifts. There will be a selection of shift patterns on offer which present greater flexible working opportunities and an increased potential for improved fill rates.
These changes have been made to offer greater flexibility and increase family friendly shift patterns.
Uniform policy reminder:
For all bank workers undertaking shifts across NHSGGC adherence to the uniform policy is mandatory.
Bank workers are provided with photographic ID along with NHSGGC Nursing & Midwifery staff bank
terms and conditions. It is the bank workers responsibility to ensure they have the appropriate ID, any
issues regarding ID should be raised with a Staff Bank Nurse Manager. All non substantive Bank workers
are issued with two uniforms on appointment. To access the full NHSGGC Uniform Policy go to HR Connect:
Sharps Awareness: Mandatory LearnPro modules
All staff who may come into contact with a healthcare related sharp (needle, lancet, blade etc) must complete the module below:
Tab – Role Specific Mandatory Modules
Course – GGC: Management of Needle stick and Similar Injuries
All staff who use a healthcare related sharp must complete both the above module and the module below:
Tab – ‘Infection Prevention and Control’
Course – ‘NES: Scottish IPC Education Pathway’
Module – ‘Prevention and Management of Occupational Exposure’
NB If you cannot find the above modules, type ‘needle’ or ‘sharp’ into the search bar in LearnPro and both modules will be displayed.
In addtion to the completion of these 2 modules, in acute services all areas (adult and paediatric) have nominated staff to cascade a 5 minute demonstration on 4 key sharps used in these areas namely the Safety PVC, safety butterfly venepuncture kit, safety quickshield and visioplus needle venepuncture kit, and safety hypodermic needles.
ALL bank only staff working in acute areas should attend one of these sessions being held locally, or ask a nominated member for a demonstration and opportunity for discussion. Bank staff should ask the nominated person to add their name and payroll number to the register left with them so the session can be added to Empower.
