Mr Joe Simpkins is a care manager. He has a case load where a client Mrs Mary is 68 years old, barely being maintained at home and desperately in need of permanent nursing placement. The client’s family are putting Mr Joe under constant pressure to get it sorted as soon as possible. Mr Joe has carried out assessment and completed all paperwork and the funding has been approved.
The issue is there are no nursing beds in social services contracted homes within 40 miles radius. There is a private nursing home but their fees exceed the social services benchmark figure.
Mr Joe has explained on several occasions to the family that the private bed can’t be used unless the family wants to top up the fees.
The District nurses visit Mrs Mary regularly. They are also feeling the pressure and understand the situations perfectly well but when confronted by the increasingly depressed family members, they occasionally lapsed into saying things like “if only social services pulled their fingers out”. The District nurses have complained to the community health partnership unit. The nurses feel there is a miscommunication and lack of understanding to the severity of the health condition of Mrs Mary. The issue is the client and is yet to be resolved.
To achieve Merit (M2) -A range of methods and techniques has been proposed to solve barriers in working partnership.
To achieve Distinction (D1) - Justify from your personal experience the outcomes of working partnership on service user, staff and organisation by showing critical reflection.
