Happy Internet Safety Day!

(0)
Although Safer Internet Day and its resources are primarily directed towards protecting children, the issue of user-safety is still very relevant to adult wards because:

  1. We’re dealing with vulnerable adults here – and the info is valuable to vulnerable people of whatever age and ability
  2. there may be issues about protecting children from Internet use by some patients
  3. patients who are parents may even appreciate some advice

So check out their website for more information.

    February 17th, 2009 at 7:44 pmHow many wards have Internet available to patients? That suddenly opens up a bunch of stuff they’d need to do – do they provide full unfiltered Internet as people might have at home or do they provide carefully filtered Internet as a responsible employer would?

    And nurses want training to help them talk about other types of safety too:
