  • Comment on: New hospital chief inspector will not monitor staffing levels

    gracerattigan@waitrose.com's comment 18 July, 2013 2:00 pm

    It is about time that you have "learnt" meanwhile the patients are suffering i.e. your mun & dad,/brother/sister/husband & wife/friend/family.Please be quick on delivering the service. Your approach is good, it is quality not quanity. I have worked in the healthcare profession for a number of years (as a nurse now retired) and see the good and the bad side of the service as more, and more family are relient on our NHS system (which is the best in the world, in any emergency)
    I wish you all the best.
    Regards,
    Grace.

  • Comment on: Delirium among older people in hospital often untreated

    Recent research!
    If we have not learned by now? It is basic common sense and does not require expensive studies/research as an excuse to ascertain:-
    When older/visually impaired people are admitted to hospital it would help them tremendous if someone could ensure (dare I sat it) put a little bit of physical effort into giving them fluids/diet (do not believe the written word on these charts) There are many witnesses to what actually happens!

    As A Roman Catholic Christian I find the comments particularly, coming from a nurse "like it or not" offensive. My understanding, in a civilised society, is for all of us, living in Britian today,as religious and non religious is to live in harmony. I have been nursing in this country since the middle sixties. (I have heard all the excuses, and worn the tea shirts!). My personal experience over the years,has taught me to have respect for the individual person (whatever preconceived ideas I had). The ethos of the Britrish culture faciliated my social education. To try to deter a nurse from wearing the crucifix which is sacred to her, is beyond sane comprehension! I now fear for the aged years and what the future holds be it under the guise of health and safety or whatever other thrumpted up charges that we face? I will be thrown to the lions shouting for my rights as a special person in my saviours eyes.
    Grace.
