After working consecutive 12 hour shifts, could you save a life?
31 Jul 2015
NHS England published its National Nursing Research Unit report recently which showed a significant increase in the number of nurses regularly working 12 hour shifts. The report, which reviewed historical data, showed that ten years ago 31% of staff nurses worked 12 hour shifts increasing to a significant 52% by 2009.
For many, a normal day at work extends to eight hours. Even working four hours less a day than many nurses leaves most of us tired by the time we get to the end of the week. Few of us have jobs involving sometimes life and death situations where speedy action can make all the difference to someone’s life.
Putting ourselves in the shoes of today’s nurse, regularly working four hours more each day than the average person, and with regular reports on the increasing demands being placed on the NHS, it’s easy to see how tiredness can lead to significant mistakes.
Introduction of Female Genital Mutilation Protection Orders
31 Jul 2015
This month, a new power came into force enabling the courts to make female genital mutilation protection orders.
This means that potential or actual victims of female genital mutilation (FGM) can now apply to the Family Courts for a protection order to ensure the necessary steps to guarantee their safety. This includes preventing girls being taken abroad to undergo FGM and the surrender of travel documents and passports.
As well as the girls themselves, other people who can apply for an order include the Police, Local Authorities, teachers, family members and friends.
Overcoming the challenges faced with low exposure asbestos claims
30 Jul 2015
It has become common for some asbestos claims to be defended on the basis that low exposure to the material did not create a foreseeable risk of injury. When we’re dealing with these types of claims, the defendants often argue that they did not breach their duty to the employee whose health has been significantly affected as a result.
Even in circumstances when we have evidence to prove that a client’s illness has in fact been caused by exposure to asbestos during the course of their employment several decades earlier, some defendants will rely on a guidance document called the Technical Data Note 13 (TDN 13) to avert responsibility.
