Venepuncture training for staff at Birch Green Care Home

on . .

Qualified nurses and a number of trainee assistant practitioners recently took part in a fully interactive venepuncture training session at Birch Green Care Home Skelmersdale.

The procedure is most commonly used for the purpose of blood sampling and is widely performed by nursing and medical staff in a variety of areas such as clinical and diagnostic aid and in-patient management.

The training covered many different aspects including legal and professional considerations for venepuncture, the safe handling of sharps and safe systems of work incorporating infection control and looking at potential complications that could arise from venepuncture.

Mike Lakins, Head of Learning and Development for Springhill Care Group said: “All course attendees had the opportunity to put their theoretical learning into simulated practice.

“As with all clinical training a series of competencies are mandatory following the training day and only when all these are achieved and organisational guidelines and protocols are fully satisfied, will staff be deemed as fully competent.

“It is a rigorous process but one that was enjoyed by the course participants.”
