The attached policy ‘HSE Policy on Annual Certification of Registration of Nurses and Midwives with An Bord Altranais’ replaces ‘HSE HR Circular 004/2010 Policy on the Management of Professional Registers and Amendments to such Registers’ in respect of the verification of annual registration of nurses and midwives with An Bord Altranais.
The purpose of this revised policy and procedure is to protect patients, service users and HSE employees and to provide evidence in support of good governance.
This new document states that it is the policy of the Health Service Executive (HSE):
(i) to employ and to maintain in employment nurses and midwives who on appointment furnish the HSE with proof of their appropriate registration in the relevant division of the register maintained by An Bord Altranais
(ii) to require nurses and midwives to certify annually, by way of the Patient Safety Assurance Certificate (PSAC), Appendix 1
