Care Homes Face Nurse Recruitment 'crisis,' Claims Forum

Urgent action is needed to attract more nurses into Wales' independent care sector so it can relieve pressure on hospital bed use, says a campaigner.Care Forum Wales chair Mario Kreft said a shortage of care home nurses was at risk of becoming a "crisis".He spoke out after it emerged two homes in the Bridgend area were to close, citing nurse recruitment problems.The Welsh government said it would work to ensure the care and safety of residents in the homes closing.HC-One, which owns Abergarw Manor in Brynmenyn and Southmead Grange in South Cornelly, blamed "a national shortage of nursing staff" for the "very difficult decision" to close the homes.Mr Kreft said closures are symptomatic of the problems affecting care homes across Wales as the way social care is commissioned is "flawed".He said: "There are a total of over 20,000 beds in the independent social care sector in Wales and of those, 11,500 beds are for people who need nursing care - and these beds are underpinning the ability of the NHS to function. "The owners of the two homes in Bridgend have been quite clear that for them the overriding issue was the lack of nurses, the inability to recruit enough nurses of the right calibre."If we don't bring more nurses into the independent sector then we're going to find that the closures which will inevitably come about will mean that more people will have to reside or find their services in a hospital bed."That means we are sleepwalking into a perfect storm of rising need, dwindling resources and a recruitment crisis unless urgent action is taken."Mr Kreft said the level of morale and motivation in Wales' care sector is "probably the lowest that it has been in 30 years". He added: "The commissioning process has to reflect the people that we need to employ and retain."Our strategy should be interlinked so that we can work in partnership with our colleagues in health boards, with Welsh government, to ensure that we're attracting the right people into social care. "It is a fact of life that looking after people in hospital is a lot more expensive that providing care in a nursing home which stops unnecessary routine admissions to hospital."A Welsh government spokesperson said: "Health boards and trusts are responsible for identifying the workforce needs for their populations. "The Workforce Education and Development Service works with health boards to understand the requirements of sectors other than the NHS, such as care home nurses. "This is taken into account each year when pre-registration education places are commissioned."

Let's Talk About the Application of Thermal Conductive Silica Gel in LED Lighting Industry
Thermal conductive silica gel sheet is a widely used thermal conductive interface material. It is in the form of sheet, high pressure shrinkage, high reliability, high temperature resistance, excellent thermal conductivity and insulation, with viscosity on the surface, simple and convenient construction. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.Heat conductive silica gel sheet is a kind of heat conductive medium material made by calendering with silica gel as the base material and adding various auxiliary materials such as metal oxides. It is usually called heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel gasket, heat conductive silicon film, soft heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel pad, etc. it is specially produced for the design scheme of using the gap to transfer heat and can fill the gap, It not only completes the heat transfer between the heating part and the heat dissipation part, but also plays the roles of insulation, shock absorption and sealing. It can meet the design requirements of miniaturization and ultra-thin equipment. It is a good heat conduction filling material with manufacturability and usability, and has a wide range of thickness and Application.Led thermal conductive silicon film is mainly used between aluminum substrate and heat sink, between aluminum substrate and shell, etc. Today, we mainly introduce the successful application of thermal conductive silica gel sheet in LED industry: there are many kinds of LED lamps. For indoor LED lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheet with relatively low thermal conductivity is generally used, which can reduce the cost of the product and meet the needs of the product itself. For some outdoor high-power LED lamps, such as street lamps, the power is much higher than other indoor lamps, In order to better heat dissipation of lamps and improve the service life of lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheets with relatively high thermal conductivity are generally used.The inherent viscosity of the heat-conducting silica gel sheet facilitates the construction. If the customer needs the heat-conducting silica gel sheet to have strong viscosity to replace the screw fixation, he can also choose to give one-sided or double-sided adhesive backing to the heat-conducting silica gel sheet. If the heat-conducting silica gel sheet needs to lock the screw, please remember to choose the heat-conducting silica gel sheet containing glass fiber cloth, which has the properties of anti puncture and anti tear. In short, the heat conductive silica gel sheet can be customized according to customer requirements to meet customer needs. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.
