Nursing Care

Nursing Care

Nursing Care is delivered by qualified nurses, each of whom is registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, in accordance with the National Care Standards. All qualified nurses have a particular interest in care of the elderly and a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of nursing care.

Each resident has a Named Nurse allocated to him or her.  It is the Named Nurse’s responsibility to assess the resident's physical, psychological and emotional needs and to prepare a comprehensive Care Plan with the resident and his or her relatives. It is the responsibility of the Named Nurse to monitor and evaluate the delivery of care. This helps to ensure there is continuity of care provided, and that in turn improves the quality of care given to the resident. There is a trained nurse on duty 24 hours each day.

Care Development

The owner of Alt-na-Craig has recently developed a management tool which is now being marketed worldwide and sold to others in the Care Home sector to improve the quality of care they can provide.

Care Reviews

Regular reviews of each resident’s health and care needs ensure that all care is tailored to meet the resident's individual requirements. There will be a formal review of care after six weeks, and six monthly thereafter. At these reviews the resident, his or her relatives, the social worker, the named nurse and the key worker are all invited to meet to discuss the resident's health, care needs and any other issues arising. A review can be undertaken at any other time if the resident's care needs change, or if there are any issues or needs which need to be addressed.
