11 Findings Patient records can only be updated on PCs in the community office base Nurses are unable to access patient records unless logged in to the system in the office Nurses are unable to access emails unless in the office There are only a limited number of PCs in the medical centres that must be shared between nurses Treatment rooms are also used as office space Only able to access time booking systems when in the office Diary is paper based Nurses are acutely aware of the inefficiencies created by technology and accommodation and the impact it has on patient care Both participants held very positive attitudes towards technology and both reported they would welcome the opportunity to work from home and use a laptop on the move

12 Impact of Issues Time is wasted travelling between office base, the nurse’s home and patient’s home Time is wasted writing up handwritten notes – approx one day a week Unnecessary dead time is created when nurses need to wait their turn for a PC Patient records may not be updated for up to two days There is a risk of transcription error Nurses cannot make decisions based on up to date information and may enter appointments ‘blind’ Nurses memory must be relied upon for patient information Patient experience is negatively affected Nurses and managers do not have an accurate picture of how nurses are spending their time Employee job satisfaction is negatively affected
