Hospital Care Admission

Butterfly Scheme

The butterfly scheme is for patients in hospital who have dementia, memory impairment or confusion. The scheme ensures staff follow a special response plan via a discreet Butterfly symbol placed by the patient’s name. Carers will also be asked to fill in and return a carer sheet, so that they can share their insight into their loved-ones care needs with the staff taking over that care during a hospital stay. If you (as a patient or carer) wish to opt in to this scheme, speak to a member of staff in the hospital.
