Resources supporting safe patient care

Do you know….

  • Which online tools support you in caring for patients when they have swallowing problems?
  • What information can you quickly access about Sepsis?
  • What resources can help in supporting  dementia care?

Our display in East Surrey Hospital library in February highlights the images, procedures and tools you can access via Anatomy TV, BNF, ClinicalKey, ClinicalSkills, Royal Marsden Manual of Nursing Procedures and UpToDate.






ClinicalSkills, and UpToDate are available password free on SASH computers (locate them via Favourites from Trust Intranet).

Royal Marsden is available password free from the Library page Specialities – Nurses but otherwise requires OpenAthens.

All the resources can be accessed off site for local NHS staff using their OpenAthens.

We have gathered information about the key resources to help staff in the following key areas:

  • Nutrition
  • Infection Control
  • Wound Care
  • Mouth Care
  • Dementia
  • Falls prevention
  • Early Warning/ Sepsis
  • Safe Medications

Have a browse, collect a leaflet or ask a member of library staff for advice in using the resources.
