Daily Dynamic Discharge huddles take place every morning across each ward of Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, with a follow-up handover meeting in the afternoon. Senior nurses lead the huddles and they are mentoring junior nurses to become more confident in the process so that they can take it forward. Further coaching techniques are being planned as part of future staff development. A member of the management team attends wards daily to support the team and, in particular, to establish that Check Chase Challenge is being implemented.
"This is a great initiative…patients rather than bed
management; makes sense doesn't it?"
