Comment on: Nurse successfully gives CPR on way to congress
Well done colleague!
That's the beauty of being a Registered Nurse. We save lives. We are worth so much more then we are paid but when we do something like this, its priceless.
She should be very proud!
Nothing new for many Trust and HR Managers.
Belligerent and dismissive in the extreme.
These people who manage a hospital after training in a management role with no clinical experience of patient care know nothing about the front line and all that entails. Id cull the lot of them and have the system hospitals worked with hen I trained, ie non clinical managers and HR/'Transformation' teams were rarely seen and never heard. Lets go back to that standard. These people need to know their place!
We have always used 'stacked shocks' without the compressions in a specialist PPCI cardiology dept I currently work for.
If I attend a cardiac arrest which is unexpected, I assess accordingly and if stacked shocks are required, then thats what I do.
As for the 'troll' who has issues with your journalist on here, dont feed it!
Im sick and tired of reading the vitriolic comments this troll has and thier anger is disproportionate and scary. I hope this 'person' is not an RN as I would question their ability to behave as a professional with patients.
Wow! That's a novel idea!!
Respect for staff??!
Motivated learning environment?!
Valuable contribution?! I dont think HR managers in the NHS even know what this means! They're too busy drinking Costa coffee in our hospital, and the HR women preening themselves with false eye lashes, make-up, short skirts and jewellery (expensive suits and watches for the blokes) and punishing the frontline clinical staff.
The HR teams at the hospital I work for are useless bullies.
When a punitive culture exists, staff will not stay. That's why so many of us are leaving to do something else. This is all we talk about in the staffroom, and winning the lottery to get out of this situation... how very sad :(
I totally agree with anonymous above (7.36pm). What kind of people are we training here?
Bring back schools of nursing to weed these evil people out before they qualify.
