Joan is being nursed on a standard hospital mattress and as yet has not had a pressure sore risk assessment done. The ward Joan is on has 30 beds. Mixed medical and surgical. The nurse unit manager trained in the early 1970s and is not a great fan of change however her assistant unit manager is a 2 year post graduate and just loves research. There are 5 part time assistant managers. The ward has succeeded in retaining around 30% of their graduates due to supportive environment and skill mix. 70 % of the staff has worked for the organization for over 10 year; they are predominantly part time females with school age children. The internet is available but is mainly used for handover notes and playing solitaire.
