Older patients with multimorbidity and extensive healthcare needs are at risk of frequent readmission to hospital after discharge. With a Swedish report entitled 'Follow-up 48-72' as its basis, the present study aimed to describe nurses' experiences of follow-up visits to older patients with multimorbidity 48 to 72 hours after discharge from hospital. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 10 nurses experienced with such home visits to older patients, and the material was analysed by qualitative content analysis...

Drew Payne
Intravenous therapy in patients' homes is a relatively new procedure in the community nursing practice. This article looks at the practicalities of administering home IV therapy from the following aspects: hand hygiene; how to adjust IV therapy practices to the home environment; care of the IV access site including appropriate dressings; identifying and reacting to problems; maintaining a safe environment when performing IV therapy in a patient's home; anaphylaxis and how to identify and manage it; and the need for training to perform home IV therapy...

Many older adults living in care homes have complex health needs requiring comprehensive care. Early warning tools can help identify deterioration, but currently they are less often used in care homes. The aim of this quality improvement project was to introduce an early warning tool, the Significant 7, to facilitate identification and management of deterioration in care home residents. The plan, do, study, act (PDSA) method was used, and process mapping informed a tailored intervention. Introducing the tool had positive outcomes for residents and care staff...

Shirley Willis, Sally Anstey
This article encourages nurses to explore leadership in district nursing practice and community teams. The challenges faced by district nurses are discussed in relation to the current health policy agenda in Wales and the increasingly complex care demands being placed on district nursing services because of the aging population and the rise in numbers of individuals living longer with multiple long-term health conditions. The concept of compassionate leadership is presented and discussed using a case study approach...

Dana Wood
Community nurses are often in the position of providing clinical services to residents in the care home sector. In doing so, they need to consider the factors that increase the risk of infection in these residents and how these might be addressed. They also need to be mindful of the collaborative approach required and any training needs of staff working there in relation to services they have provided.

Richard Griffith
The cost of negligence claims in the NHS continues to rise, with NHS England alone paying out some £1.75 billion in compensation last year ( NHS Resolution, 2018 ). Negligence law concerns liability for careless acts or omissions that harm another in breach of a duty of care ( Sidaway v Bethlem Royal Hospital [1985] ). To minimise the risk of liability it is essential that district nurses are aware of the circumstances that give rise to a duty of care and the standard expected of them in discharging their duty...

Alexandra Carlin, Anna Chesters
District nurse numbers in the UK are rapidly declining. To overcome this severe staff shortage, one community trust in a rural county appointed 'case managers' (nurses without Specialist Practice Qualifications in district nursing [SPQDN]) in band 6 leadership roles that were traditionally held by district nurses. Here, we aimed to establish the value of the SPQDN to determine if there is a future for the conventionally accepted DN role, instead of case managers. The study used an exploratory mixed-methods design...

The role of the district nurse is imperative in the care of patients in a district nursing team's caseload. Through the role of care manager, district nurses are accountable for the overall coordination of the care patients receive. Their responsibilities include caring for acutely ill patients, those with long-term conditions and people who require end-of-life care, in addition to health promotion and patient education. They provide personcentred, preventive and coordinated care, which reduces unnecessary hospital admissions and enables patients who have a range of complex needs to remain at or return to home...
