My pledge was to improve Mouth care and improve patient outcomes by reducing chest infections and pneumonia.
Fab change week was a great way to share good practice and encourage others to make change.
Dry mouth is really common in Dysphagia patients, looking at increasing awareness I set off with a trolley and crackers!
Cracker challenge happened at Salisbury District Hospital.
I feel this is the best way to show staff how it feels to have dry mouth following poor mouth care.
It went down a treat with the help of some goodies. Staff also wrote their pledges, overall it was a #fabchangeweek
