Abstract

There are currently almost three times as many care home beds as NHS hospital beds in England, and the number is projected to rise significantly by 2019 (Laing and Buisson, 2009). The majority of care homes have no on-site nursing and are dependent on community nurses to assess, advise and support residents' healthcare needs.
