Posted: 02-02-2023

Healthcare workers receiving CHAPs training certificates

A cohort of senior Rotherwood care staff have completed an accredited CHAPs (Care Home Assistant Practitioner) training programme to equip them with enhanced clinical care practice and management skills.

Bridging the gap between the Senior Carers and the fully qualified Nursing Team, the programme has broadened the staff’s skills in areas including administration and management; T34 Syringe Drivers; tissue viability, dressings, wounds, and pressure relief; dysphagia; enteral administration; stoma care; catheter care, insulin administration; as well as venepuncture and cannulation.
The training was completed by Gary Rees (Nurse Assistant at Roden Hall); Rozina Maryam (Quality Assurance Officer at Roden Hall); Sarah Bullock (Nurse Assistant at St George’s Park); Jan Waring (Nurse Assistant at St George’s Park); Jenny Peckham (Nurse Assistant at St George’s Park); and Angela Dallow (Senior Health Care Assistant at Gwen Walford).
Cheryl Walne, the Regional Manager at Rotherwood Healthcare, said:
“ We have some wonderful members of staff across our homes who completed this training and have widened their skill set. I was thrilled to formally present the staff with their certificates. The programme further enhances our care delivery, and it is a credit to these individuals.” 
With a dedication to staff training, Rotherwood Healthcare won ‘Best for Training and Development’ at the Care Home Awards 2022.
