Cork Kerry Community Healthcare has confirmed that recruitment has started to allow for the opening of an additional eight beds in the Community Nursing Unit In Kenmare.
This recruitment campaign follows acceptance by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation of management proposals on staffing at the unit.
Immediate Staff Recruitment
“We are now proceeding immediately to recruit staff to open these beds as soon as possible.
Recruitment can prove challenging, and for that reason we will be carrying out an extensive campaign,” said spokesperson, Mary Smithwick, Communications Manager, Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, Health Service Executive.
Beds Open on a Phased Basis
“The beds will open on a phased basis, and this will be dependent on a successful recruitment campaign.
“Cork Kerry Community Healthcare has been engaging with the INMO for some time, and we are pleased that the INMO has now accepted management proposals on staffing levels. The agreed staffing levels will provide a very high standard of care at the unit.
Proposed Rosters Accepted
“SIPTU has already accepted the proposed rosters for Health Care Assistants.
“We are eager to open these beds as soon as possible. The unoccupied rooms are fully furnished and ready to be occupied.
“All beds at the unit have been inspected by and registered with HIQA.
“However, we must emphasise that the phased opening of the additional beds is dependent on recruitment,” Ms. Smithwick concluded.
