Case Scenario – St – Patrick’s Nursing Home

You have recently been appointed as a trainee Human Resources Officer at St-Patrick’s Nursing Home located in central London. During the first formal meeting with the Board of Directors you were told about the recent expansion of the nursing home by your HR Director.
You were also informed about the various problems that St Patrick’s Nursing Home have been experiencing, such as the high rate of employee turnover (caused by low pay, poor working conditions, long hours, not enough benefits or a negative atmosphere from management, fixed/inflexible contracts; inadequate salaries; recruitment based on favoritism etc.). Also complaints from residents and families about the quality of care, and staff errors due to Insufficient knowledge or application of clinical-care standards and protocols; lack of guidelines; inadequate supervision that compromised the safety and efficiency of care.
The HR Director is under pressure to increase staff retention in order to reduce future training and recruitment costs. She believes that the current recruitment and selection policies of St-Patrick’s Nursing Home are partly responsible for the turnover problem.
The HR Director also suggested that care workers’ performance, satisfaction and commitment to the organisation depend on collaborative team-working. She mentioned that staff members were often blamed for not communicating important messages to one another whilst on shift, not handing over effectively at the end of their shift, and coming to work “just to do their shift and go home”.
As part of your job, you are required to ensure that the recruitment planning and selection approaches are used effectively and that the relevant legislative and policy framework of the home country are implemented during this process; and prepare a comprehensive and appropriate Performance Evaluation Plan for all of the employees working in your organisation; also you should to make some recommendations on the types of training nursing staff will require considering their current level of competence and future development requirements. At the end of the training, the employees will acquire the knowledge and skills to enable them apply the core standards set by the Care Quality Commission.
You have been asked by your boss to arrange a training session for the care staff in order to enlighten them about the techniques and leadership skills that you have used and applied over the period of time in managing and leading people at the workplace, and which they can apply to their roles. Your training session also needs to educate them about the relevance and application of different leadership theories in leading people and managing relationships with peers and subordinates.
Finally, make them aware how you have been continuously updating your knowledge and developing yourself throughout, and what the benefits of ‘investing in yourself’ were.
A grand party would be organized by your HR director praising all your hard work and achievements you would have accomplished in a short span of time working at St-Patrick’s Nursing Home.
