Thousands missing out on routine asthma checks By Ashleigh Webber on 7 May 2021 in Clinical governance , Respiratory , Health surveillance , OH service delivery , Occupational Health Thousands of people who are at a heightened risk of having a fatal asthma attack have not had a face-to-face annual review with a medical professional during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is according to the charity Asthma UK, which is concerned that people with the most severe symptoms, such as having to use a reliever inhaler three times a week or more or waking up in the night feeling breathless, are not getting the preventative care they need. Workers with lung conditions ‘prepared to quit’ rather than return post Covid-19 Its report published on World Asthma Day earlier this week (5 May) stated that 28% of asthma sufferers had not had an annual review where their medication was checked over the past year, and 21% had not had their inhaler technique checked. Almost half did not have a written asthma action plan, which the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence’s best practice guidelines state should be provided by GP surgeries. Dr Andy Whittamore, clinical lead at Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation, said: “It is deeply concerning that so many people including some of the most at risk of an asthma attack are not receiving any basic care which could keep them well and out of hospital. “Everyone working in the NHS is trying their hardest in these unprecedented circumstances but it is still vital that everyone with asthma gets the care and support they need to avoid a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. “GPs need to balance clinical need and what patients want. People experiencing uncontrolled symptoms must be prioritised for an assessment with their GP surgery as they might benefit from a more thorough assessment which may require a face-to-face appointment.” Alison Cook, director of external affairs at Asthma UK and the chair of the Taskforce for Lung Health, added: “At a time when we are more conscious of our lungs than ever before, it is particularly troubling to see that in the past year, as many as 450,000 people living with uncontrolled asthma have not been informed about how to use their new inhalers properly, leaving them at risk of life-threatening asthma attacks. An inhaler technique check is basic care and neglecting this type of care puts people at risk. “Although remote care can be helpful for many people in supporting them with their asthma, for those with uncontrolled symptoms, it is vital that access to face to face care is maintained”. Meanwhile, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has said it is carrying out inspections of fabricated metal businsses to check they are managing the respiratory risks of welding fumes and metalworking fluids. Over the past year, 12,000 people have died from lung diseases thought to be linked to past occupational exposures in a range of sectors. The HSE will be looking for evidence of employers and workers knowing the risks of occupational lung disease, planning their work, and using the right controls to protect workers’ health. “Our inspection initiative aims to ensure employers and workers are aware of the risks associated with the activities they do. They must recognise these dangers and manage these risks through reducing exposure,” said HSE’s acting head of manufacturing and utilities Clare Owen. “Dutyholders need to do the right thing, for example, through completing a risk assessment, ensuring workers are trained and reducing exposure using local exhaust ventilation and using suitable respiratory protective equipment to protect workers, where required.”https://www.personneltoday.com/hr/thousands-miss-out-on-routine-asthma-checks/

As a result, hotels are forced to cut costs wherever possible: Anything that is not considered an essential part of the core business is put to the test. Quality Assurance falls into this category, raising the question whether traditional Quality Assurance hasn't been an anachronism for some time killer deal anyway, with the current crisis only being the final nail in the coffin. For example, luxury hotel operator Dorchester Collection abandoned traditional Quality Assurance some time ago, preferring to focus entirely on guest reviews that are collected 24/7 from multiple booking channels, as well as directly from the hotels. However, the vast majority of the luxury hotel operators still stick with one provider of traditional Quality Assurance. While decision makers at the operator head-offices claim benchmarking is the main argument for working with the same provider as their competition, a growing number of hoteliers on the ground question the relevance of the up-to-three annual audits. In addition, tying hotel management's pay to the result of such anonymous audits is seen by many as a questionable practice. Let us recall quickly how traditional Quality Assurance typically works: Anonymous 45-hour audit executed by a professional inspector; Checking 800 - 1,200 boxes (yes, no, n/a) covering all departments relevant to the guest experience; Focusing on facilities, service quality, and EQ (emotional intelligence); Disclosing the nature of the hotel stay to the GM upon departure; Commissioned by the hotel operator's head office. For many hotel companies, the major selling, or for that matter, buying argument appears to be benchmarking, which necessitates a standardised approach in order to facilitate comparing results with a hotel's peer group. This, at the same time, is also the major weakness, a uniformist, one-size-fits-all and lowest-common-denominator approach that does not serve the purpose—at least for individual, differentiating value-propositions, especially for high-end 5-star+ brands that aspire to exceed. Furthermore, what exactly is the value of finding out that a hotel, for example, scored 1.88% higher or lower than another hotel? In general, why would an operator work with the same advisor as its competitors in the first place, in what should be the core competence, delivering quality that reflects each property's unique DNA? This, obviously, assumes that the operator believes such a DNA exists. One conclusion is that this uniformist approach to quality contributes to the fact that most luxury hospitality brands lack differentiation and therefore are interchangeable in the guests' eyes. As always, a few exceptions prove the rule. In addition, many inspectors have to work their way through two checklists of standards during an audit, one for the third-party Quality Assurance provider and another for the brand. As this equates to roughly one box checked every minute, how on earth is the inspector supposed to grasp and inhale the very essence of a hotel's offering, DNA, or value proposition? How can he or she accurately observe and assess the critical human interaction between employees and guests under such time pressure? Doesn't this push the inspector into being a box-checker, similar to a book-keeper?https://www.hospitalitynet.org/opinion/4100966.html
