    Daca nu stapaniti engleza la nivel bun spre foarte bun nu va bagati la primiri urgente (de fapt la interviu aia ar trebui sa-si dea seama).
    In acel loc comunicarea este esentiala, dar, mai ales,
    turele de weekend seara cu toti aia in stare de ebrietate care ajung pe la A&E, sanse sa va luati abuz verbal la greu!

    Nici eu nu-mi doresc Londra, pentru ca am auzit ca e foarte scumpa viata acolo. Am postat anuntul pentru ca m-am gandit ca poate intereseaza pe cineva....
    Eu tot nu ma pot decide pe care varianta s-o aleg din cele doua oferte ale mele in casele de batrani din sudul Angliei. La una primesc mai putin la inceput dar mai mult dupa ce primesc PIN-ul, iar la cealalta primesc mai mult de la inceput, dar dupa ce primesc PIN-ul scrie ca imi vor recalcula salariul, dar nu scriu exact cu cat il vor mari......

    Buna,

    Vreau sa intreb si eu daca stie cineva NHS Accomodation - in Londra...si daca se merita.
    Am inceput Job-ul la un spital privat din zona 1 ( Earls Court) si singura lor recomandare a fost a2dominion care au mai mult Student Accomodation style; nu stiu daca as mai vrea sa stau ca in anii de studentie la cei 35+ ani -ras4- .

    Bineinteles ca intre timp caut is in privat ( e.g. spareroom, easyflatmate) dar ma gandeam ca in Londra trebuie sa fie ceva Studio Style NHS Accomodation; am lucrat in Nordul Angliei pana acum unde parca era mai usor de gasit accomodation pentru asistente; bineinteles ca nu pot sa compar cu Londra + ca sunt la inceput de drum si inca absorb informatii.

    Multumesc.

    Toate aceste reguli se calculeaza in functie de momentul inscrieri in NMC ul lor ? Se mi pune la socoteala daca ai terminat de mai bine de 3 ani , fara a fi practicat meseria in Ro ?

    Salutare tuturor! Azi am fost la workshopul VPL Healthcare din Iasi, pot sa va spun ca si noutati ca au inceput sa aiba oferte de munca mai echilibrate (in sensul ca au joburi cam 50/50 in nursing home/spitale), acum vreun an erau mult mai multe joburi in NH decat in spitale. Iar de putin timp au si un birou permanent in iasi :)

    Am dat un copy/paste de aici de pe forum.
    1. Ce faci daca un pacient se loveste la cap?
    2. care sunt tipurile de fracturi la batrani?
    3.Ce faci daca o persoana mai tanara din personal vine la tine si se plange de un pacient?
    4.Din ce cauza se provoaca dementa?
    5.Cate tipuri de dementa cunosti?
    6Cum iti dai seama ca o persoana este dementa? (aici i-am spus ca-l vad pierdut in spatiu) este foarte improtant, desi stiu ca deja stii si tu asta
    7.Ce faci daca administrezi un medicament gresit?
    8.Ce faci daca un pacient devine agitat si recalcitrant?
    9.Ce faci dupa o zi stresanta de munca?
    etc.

    Uite aici intrebarile si raspunsurile pe care mi le-am pregatit eu cand am avut interviul cu Forest Healthcare (care home).
    Nu cred ca am fost intrebata altceva in afara de ce e aici -asa-asa-
    Poate iti dau un pic de inspiratie -da-da-

    1. Why do you want to come and work in the UK?
    The main reason why I want to come and work in the UK is because I have a higher chance to do something that I want, related to my working domain. Nursing job opportunities in my country are rare. I want to start working as a registered nurse as fast as possible, since that is my career goal.
    Overall, I want to move to the UK for a better future and a better chance for me to achieve all my goals and dreams.

    2. Can you tell me about yourself ?
    My name is Dranau Ioana Andreia, I’m 22 years old and I live in the small city of Pecica. I’ve just finished my nursing school, and the only work experience I have is dealing with Oriflamme products during my school years. I’ve done a few weeks of voluntary work for our local care home after I graduated, assisted by one of our local family doctors. I’m currently looking to move to the UK together with my boyfriend, and start my career as a general nurse.

    3. Do you know what a Care home is?
    A care home is a place for people who need continuous medical treatment or who are unable to look after themselves, especially people who are old or mentally ill. It is a place in which they can live to the best of their abilities, a place in which they can feel safe and happy living the rest of their lives.

    4. What do you feel are the main responsibilities in this job (as a Registered Nurse in a Care home)
    I feel that the main responsibilities of a RN are :
    - to be a good CAREGIVER by doing that a nurse provides hands-on care to patients in a variety of settings.
    -to be a good DICISION MAKER that is to use critical thinking skills to make decisions, set goals, and promote outcomes for a patient
    -to be a good COMUNICATER the nurse understands that effective communication techniques can help improve the healthcare environment
    -to be a good MANAGER OF CARE The nurse works with other healthcare workers as the manager of care and ensures that the patient's care is cohesive.
    -to be a good PACIENT ADVOCATE As a patient advocate, the nurse's responsibility is to protect a patient's rights
    -to be a good THEACHER As a teacher, nurses help patients learn about their health, medications, treatments, and procedures as well as deal with challenges they may face during and after their illness.

    5. What qualities are essential for an RGN in an elderly care setting?
    In my opinion there are a few qualities that are essential for a nurse in this kind of setting:
    - having good communication and interpersonal skills;
    - being able to show kindness and empathy towards the residents;
    - flexibility regarding working hours and shifts;
    - good problem solving skills and quick to respond in case of emergencies;

    6. Do you know what types of ABUSE?
    -physical abuse: use of force against an elderly person that results in physical pain, injury, or impairment; confinement, restraints;
    -emotional abuse: people speak to or treat elderly persons in ways that cause emotional pain or distress;
    -sexual abuse: contact with an elderly person without the elder’s consent. Such contact can involve physical sex acts, but activities such as showing an elderly person pornographic material, forcing the person to watch sex acts, or forcing the elder to undress;
    -neglect or abandonment: failure to fulfill a caretaking obligation;
    -financial exploitation: unauthorized use of an elderly person’s funds or property, either by a caregiver or an outside scam artist;

    7. Do you know what a pressure ulcer is and how many types are there?
    Pressure ulcers are also known as bed sores. They occur when skin breaks down due to constant pressure, especially over bony areas of the body, and they occur especially on bed-ridden persons.
    They are classified in 4 stages, starting from stage I and up to stage IV. Each stage gets progressively worse.
    Stage 1: A stage I pressure ulcer is characterized by intact skin with redness that doesn't fade when pressure is relieved.
    Stage 2: If the ulcer progresses to stage II, a noticeable breakdown of the skin becomes apparent. The ulcer will resemble an scrape, blister or shallow crater.
    Stage 3: This stage is characterized by a complete loss of skin tissue with damage extending down to the fat or fascia layer beneath. It looks like a deep crater and may affect the skin nearby.
    Stage 4: A stage IV pressure ulcer goes all the way down to the muscle and bone, damaging them and other supporting structures including tendons and joints. They are deep caverns and may have tunneling, meaning they extend out beneath the intact layer of skin.


    8. Explain what you know about Diabetes? Types, treatment and prevention.
    Diabetes is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels. There are 3 types of diabetes:
    Type 1: The body does not produce insulin.
    Treatment: Patients with type 1 diabetes will need to take insulin injections for the rest of their life. They must also ensure proper blood-glucose levels by carrying out regular blood tests and following a special diet.
    Type 2: The body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or the cells in the body do not react to insulin.
    Treatment: Some people may be able to control their type 2 diabetes symptoms by losing weight, following a healthy diet, doing plenty of exercise, and monitoring their blood glucose levels. In some cases the patient will probably end up have to take insulin, usually in tablet form.
    Gestational Diabetes: This type affects females during pregnancy. Some women have very high levels of glucose in their blood, and their bodies are unable to produce enough insulin to transport all of the glucose into their cells, resulting in progressively rising levels of glucose.
    Treatment: The majority of gestational diabetes patients can control their diabetes with exercise and diet.
    Preventing diabetes includes doing physical exercises, eating healthy and checking your blood sugar levels regularly.

    9. A Relative comes to you and makes a complaint about their mothers care, explain to me what you do?
    I would listen to their concerns, and reassure them that I was doing my very best for their loved one, and make sure that if any concerns were well founded they were addressed immediately.
    If their concerns are not about something I can solve, I would reassure them it will be dealt with immediately, and report it to my senior.

    10. How can you ensure a high standard of Care IS delivered?
    You have to remember that every patient is a human being, and not something that needs repairing. You have to know your patients and their needs, and be able to do your duties according to those needs they have.

    11. Explain to me how you would administer medications safely?
    First, you have to check that you have the right medication, for the right patient. After you have confirmed that, you have to make sure you administer the right dose of medication at the right time, through the right route. After administrating the medication you have to make sure you get the right response to that medication. After you’re done administrating the medication you have to make sure you document it, and any other information that’s necessary.

    12. How would you lead your team as you shall be working with unqualified CARE Assistances?
    Knowing your patients and your carers is the key. You have to be able to communicate clearly with them, and let them know exactly what they need to do, and how to do it. Every patient might have special needs, so you must be able to cater to their individual needs.

    13. How do you keep up-to-date with changes in nursing guidelines and other healthcare approaches?
    There’s a lot of ways to stay up-to-date with changes nowadays. Nursing blogs, nursing magazines, nursing facebook groups, seminaries, etc.

    14. What are the signs and symptoms of a heart attack?
    The most common warning symptoms of a heart attack are:
    - Chest pain or discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center or left side of the chest.
    - Upper body discomfort. You may feel pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach (above the belly button).
    - Shortness of breath. This may be your only symptom, or it may occur before or along with chest pain or discomfort. It can occur when you are resting or doing a little bit of physical activity.

    Other common symptomes:
    • Breaking out in a cold sweat
    • Feeling unusually tired for no reason, sometimes for days (especially if you are a woman)
    • Nausea (feeling sick to the stomach) and vomiting
    • Light-headedness or sudden dizziness

    15. What is an anticoagulant and when would it be used?
    Anticoagulants are a group of drugs that work to prevent the coagulation of blood. They are used to treat or prevent atrial fibrillation, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, congestive heart failure, stroke, myocardial infarction, etc.

    16. Give a specific example of a time when you knew you did a good job as a nurse.
    Even though I didn’t work as a nurse yet, I was really active and involved during practice hours. One day, the head nurse just came up to me and asked me if I can go administer some medication to a few patients I was familiar with. That made me feel like I’m doing a good job, because she realized I was capable enough to do it alone. After that, she would often let me take blood samples, administer medication, give shots, without her needing to assist me.

    17. What would you do if you gave a resident the wrong medication?
    Inform the patient about it, inform the other staff members, inform the doctor. Check the patient’s vital signs and monitor his state of health constantly. Document the mistake, and be prepared to take quick action if any changes in the resident’s state occur.

    18. What changes in behaviour might be associated with a resident becoming depressed and what interventions would you put in place?
    Withdrawing from family and friends, avoiding certain situations, not enjoying any activity, doing things that are out of character like being angry or aggressive, are all signs that a resident might have fallen into depression. Depending on the case, there’s 3 types of interventions that can be taken:
    -medical: usually in the form of antidepressants;
    -psychological: usually in the form of therapy;
    -and in the form of lifestyle change (changes in diet, exercises, social activities,etc);

    19. What would you do if one of the residents went missing in your shift?
    Alert the other staff members, and manager. Then you inform their family and start looking for him.

    20. What are the main challenges in caring for someone who is elderly frail or has dementia?
    I think the main challenges are:
    -maintaining them in good health and nutrition: they need to eat healthy, stay fit, so they won’t risk getting other illnesses;
    -making sure they can deal with personal hygiene, and help them if needed;
    -making sure they sleep well, since many old people or people with dementia have problems sleeping well; they can have insomnia, or disturbances during sleep; administering sleeping medication if needed;
    -taking care of yourself as well, and maintaining a positive attitude can be stressful at times;

    21. How would you handle a resident who has been having persistent falls?
    The first step in such a case is finding the cause of the falls. Depending on the cause, certain actions should be taken immediately to keep the falls from occurring. Increasing exercise and physical activity, reviewing medication, changing environmental factors can help in preventing future falls.
    Other changes can be taken, depending on the resident’s condition.

    22. What would you do if you walked into a room and a patient had had a fall and was on the ground?
    Firstly, assess the situation. Check if the patient is conscious or not, and if not, check his vital signs, and if needed perform CPR. I would check and see if he’s got any bruises, fractures or damage from the fall. If he’s conscious, I need to ask him if he feels any pain or numbness in any parts of the body. Then inform the other staff members, family and their doctor. After the fall, you need to make sure you monitor the patient’s health properly, since falls can often cause other problems. Finally you need to document everything that happened.

    23. What would you do if you saw another member of staff abusing a resident?
    I would tell him to stop and report it to the person in charge. Abusing residents is unacceptable.

    24. How do you prevent pressure ulcers?
    You can prevent pressure ulcers by doing regular movements and activities, not staying in one place for a long time, keeping yourself clean (especially the areas that are prone to develop a pressure ulcer: bony areas, ears, elbows, knees, spine, hips), drinking lots of liquids, sleeping on a soft mattress, changing position every few hours if immobilized, use cream to protect your skin,etc.

    25. What would you do if a senior nurse told you to do something a certain way because that is the way they always do it there, but you knew it was the wrong way to do it?
    I would try to explain to her, that it’s not the right way to do it, and if she insisted on it, I would go ask someone else to confirm if I’m right or not.

    26. Can you name the 5 rights of medication administration?
    You need to administer the right medication in the right dose to the right patient, at the right time through the right route. Also, after the medication has been administered it needs to be documented.

    27. What do you know about the employer / Why do you want to work for the employer?
    Forest Healthcare is a provider of residential, nursing, dementia and specialist care for people as young as 18, and up to 100 years or more. Their first nursing home was open in 1994, and now they care for over 600 residents. Their primary objective is to improve the quality of life for the people they care for, while making sure they are safe, secure and motivated to live a full and happy life.
    I want to work for Forest Healthcare because it looks like a great place to start my nursing career, develop and improve my abilities, as well as learning how to provide the best care possible.

    28. Are you familiar with the position/role? Explain.
    Yes. The primary job of a registered nurse is to care for the needs of the patients in the nursing home. Some responsibilities include making sure patients maintain good levels of hygiene, receive proper nutrition, have clean beds, administering medication, monitoring vital signs, drawing blood, giving IV’s and making sure the carers provide the best care for the patients.

    29. Tell me about your previous professional experience (focus on nursing).
    Even though I didn’t work as a nurse yet, I’ve taken care of a few patients during my clinical training in nursing school. I’ve administered medication, drawn blood for lab tests, checked patient’s vital signs, changed bandages, took blood sugar levels and monitored the patient’s progression over time.

    30. What qualifications or experiences do you have that would make you a success in this field?
    My qualification as a nurse and my clinical training experience is a good start towards working in this field.

    31. What job in our company do you want to work towards?
    I want to develop my abilities as a registered nurse. I want to see and learn everything I can in my working field, and I want to be able to do everything in my power to ensure that people get the highest quality of care possible.

    32. What is your greatest achievement to date?
    I feel like my greatest achievement to date is finishing my nursing school. This is only the beginning and I’m sure it’s only the first achievement of many more to come.

    33. How do you manage your time on a daily basis?
    I try to prioritize the things I need to do based on their importance. If I have a lot of things to do, I usually do a list on my calendar, arrange them by importance and set notifications so I know what and when I have to do something.

    34. What tasks do you least like in your current role and why?
    I haven’t had any tasks I didn’t enjoy doing yet, so I can’t elaborate more on this question.

    35. What are you strengths/weaknesses?
    I consider myself an honest, hard-working girl that is also flexible and able to adapt and learn quickly. I always keep a positive attitude and I’m motivated to do my best throughout my career.
    I think my main weaknesses are that I’m a sensitive person and that I can’t really say no when I’m being asked for help

    36. Why should I hire you?
    Even thou I’m a fresh graduate of nursing school, I have the motivation to work very hard so I can improve my abilities and provide the best care possible. I’m a young person and I will do my best to adapt, learn and fulfil all of your care centre’s needs.

    Questions to Ask Interviewer
    What type of training will I receive for this position?
    What professional development opportunities are available to nurses?
    What is the next step in the recruitment process? How soon would you like the new person to start working?

    Well, tin sa spun ca nu m-au intrebat nimic de dementa la interviu, si in mare parte toti din NH o cam au. Oricum m-am interesat si de aia -dans-
    Aia a fost lista cu intrebari care mi-a dat-o recrutorul sa o fac in mare parte -da-da-
    Probabil depinde de la caz la caz, dar sunt de acord cu ce zici -ras4-
    De my inglish, I know, dar am timp -asa-asa-

    Da, se poate. Doar dupa ce ai primit confirmarea ca toate sunt ok si sa faci a doua plata de atunci nu o sa mai ceara.

    Dupa 2 zile de vacanta de Paste pe care au avut-o cei de la NMC mi-au raspuns la telefon ieri si mi-au zis ca dupa o saptamana imi vor putea da un raspuns sigur, daca le mai trebuie acte, sau va trebui sa platesc cea de a 2-a taxa. Deci sunt tot in asteptarea PIN-ului.....

    Bună seara.
    Am citit postările anterioare și am găsit, ce-i drept, informații referitoare la toate problemele ce aveam de gând să le ridic aici.
    Problema ar fi că multe informații le-am găsit în postări mai vechi, unele chiar de câțiva ani, în consecință, sper că nu deranjez sau supăr pe nimeni dacă readuc în discuție subiecte deja dezbătute aici.
    Sunt la început de drum, adică doar ce am depus (01.04.2015) dosarul către MS pentru eliberarea certificatului de conformitate. Doamna de la DSP m-a încurajat peste măsură, spunându-mi că s-au ridicat aceste certificate și după 8 luni. Are cineva vreo experiență mai recentă pe acest subiect? Pot urgenta cumva această procedură anevoioasă de eliberare a documentului menționat anterior?
    Bine înțeles că ulterior voi aplica la NMC, aici cu câtă răbdare să mă înarmez, în cât timp voi reuși să ajung în UK să lucrez ca asistent medical?
    Mulțumesc pentru răbdarea de a citi ce am scris și, de ce nu, mulțumesc pentru răspunsuri.

    Buna, imi cer scuze daca pun o intrebare la care s-a mai raspuns deja, insa m-am pierdut in multitudinea de informati de pe site.

    Am absolvit in 2009, am inceput studiile in 2006, de la Ministerul Sanatatii am obtinut o Recomandare si nu un Certificat de conformitate. Am doar 3 ani experienta ca si asistent medical.

    Intrebarea mea este daca pot obtine PIN doar cu Recomandarea?

    Stiu ca o reglemenatare in acest domeniu impune niste cursuri pe care trebuie sa le fac in tara pentru a obtine Certificatul de conformitate, vreau doar sa stiu daca pot obtine PIN avand doar acea recomandare.

    Va multumesc.

    Ok, altă problemă:
    Eu am absolvit școala post liceală în anul 2003. În planul de înățământ am prinse 30 de ore de geriatrie cursuri, însă la practică nu am nicio oră.
    În consecință, de unde pot obține o adeverință de practică (eventual voluntariat, dacă este bun voluntariatul) în condițiile în care în zona noastră niciun spital nu are secție de geriatrie. Mi-ar fi utilă o adeverință de la un medic de familie? Ori să caut un azil de bătrâni și să încerc să oobțin această adeverință.
