  • Comment on: CQC 'not fit for purpose', claim doctors' leaders

    Anonymous's comment 30 June, 2013 12:30 pm

    There was s discussion about Hospital Chaplains on R4 this morning, and someone commented 'that nurses, doctors and patients understand what chaplains do, but very often middle manager (who control the purse strings) don't'.

    The CQC is one of many bits of the health system, which has clearly made mistakes, but everywhere you can see a pattern of openly criticising when others try to 'hide' their mistakes, while not being very open about 'our own failings'.

    It isn't as simple as scrapping the CQC - it is a horribly complicated problem to deal with, the introduction throughout the NHS of the 'openness and transparency' Francis so loudly called for!

    I also like Tinkerbell's new picture, even if it looks a bit 'catty'.

  • Comment on: How do you get hospital staff to walk in the shoes of people with dementia?

    Anonymous's comment 18 June, 2013 3:36 pm

    I like the out-of-the-box thinking of creating a play - but isn't

    Commissioned to inform policy and workforce planning, I expect the final report could, like countless others, have sat on a shelf gathering dust. Justine tried to organise feedback sessions for staff once the report was completed but the attendance was poor.

    true all too often? Very difficult to change anything in the NHS and healthcare.

  • Comment on: Should falls be a “never event”? Or are some falls inevitable?

    Anonymous's comment 18 June, 2013 3:29 pm

    'Never Events' are clearly not things which can never happen - of course some people will fall.

    The suicide in hospital one is philosophically interesting, as suicide isn't illegal and recent court ruling support the right of people to commit suicide by starving themselves - Anonymous | 17-Jun-2013 7:50 pm summed it up with "look after your elderly patients as they deserve with respect and without patronising them"

  • Comment on: David Drew: 'Politicians and NHS leaders are in denial about bullying'

    Mike, being at a loose end, I've checked your BMJ link (it works) and the Google search (does what you said it does).
