  4. Supporting Care and Nursing Homes • Understanding challenges from providers’ perspective • 2 short presentations - Dr Natalie Powell SASH Dr Radcliffe Lisk Ashford and St Peters • Solutions to the challenges faced

  5. Recommendations from Quest for Quality • Commission services and service specifications to support care homes • Care home residents at centre of decisions about their care - care planning to include place of care and end of life care planning • Integrated healthcare services – primary medical and nursing care together with mental health, care of the elderly hospital departments, palliative care, rehabilitation • NHS should clarify obligations to care home residents

  6. Challenges for GPs • 61% - Current arrangements for medical care of patients in care homes unsatisfactory • 68% - Care home work major source of stress for GPs • 73% - Lack of support or resources to manage patients in care homes safely

  7. Old age Psychiatrists • 87% worked with care homes • 64% not specifically commissioned to do so

  8. Geriatricians • 40% felt medical support to care homes below average or poor • >70% depression and dementia not optimally managed • >50% incontinence and end of life care could be better managed • 73% wanted greater involvement in care home work • 30% involved in initiatives to support care in care homes – only half allocated time in job plans • 18% unsuccessful in securing PCT funding for such initiatives • 45% reported PCT initiatives not involving their departments • 90% PCTs reported initiatives – mostly involving community matrons

  9. Care Homes • GP input – 1 or 15? – Continuity of care • District nurses reluctant to go into nursing homes eg male catheterisation • Limited access to physiotherapy and OT • Different attitude to access – residential homes vs nursing homes • Out of hours care – “send to hospital”, lack of available information re planned care • Care home priorities set by social care rather than healthcare • Lack of confidence of care staff • Policies operating in care homes e.g. medicines available for emergencies e.g. oral steroids and antibiotics for acute exacerbation of COPD. Care homes cannot stock drugs other than homely remedies
