We are a Releasing Time to Care (RTC) ward and are also implementing Care Capacity Demand Management (CCDM) within the ward.

Releasing Time to Care
RTC is a programme developed by the English National Health Service (NHS) being successfully implemented in DHBs throughout New Zealand. The aim of the programme is to free up time in our nurses' day so they can increase the amount of time they have for direct patient care and improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of the care delivered to the patient.

Care Capacity Demand Management
CCDM is an organisational approach that ensures the right number of skilled staff are in the right place at the right time, with appropriate resources to meet patients' needs (demand) and deliver safe, effective and efficient care.

 

Visiting hours:

Visiting hours are 2pm to 8pm daily. Visitors are asked not to visit if suffering from an infection and to avoid visiting during the tea period, 5-6pm.
