Hard work of staff recognised in practice development reaccreditation

The hard work of staff in maintaining and improving standards of care was underlined earlier this year when Poole Hospital received trust-wide practice development unit reaccreditation.

Practice Development Unit (PDU) status is given to health services found to be progressive, patient-centred and high quality following a rigorous assessment process and is awarded by Bournemouth University’s health and social care faculty.

The assessors were impressed with the quality of the report and evidence produced noting ‘‘the documentation prior to the event was superbly put together – with 52 appendices of evidence, and the discussion, presentations and posters from the day were informative and well presented’’.

Yvonne Jeffery, assistant director of nursing said: “I’m delighted that the hard work of staff has been recognised with this reaccreditation.

“The PDU status reflects the commitment of our staff in providing high standards of care and maintaining the positive reputation Poole Hospital has amongst its patients”

The hospital will be presented with a plaque in recognition of this prestigious award in November.

Date: 9 September 2014
