  • Comment on: Hospital launches cadet apprenticeship to help build nursing workforce

    Nanny 1's comment 4 August, 2017 9:08 pm

    I was also a cadet nurse from 1964-1966 and loved every minute. I am still working now part time, retiring on my 70th, so am in an excellent position to understand how much has changed. However despite so many new developments in medicine the things that have changed the most are peoples' attitudes. Management has become much more approachable, and I think, appreciative of the nurses work. However the public have become much more demanding and disrespectful towards nurses. The government is responsible for the demanding attitude, by raising expectations way above what is achievable. The media is mostly responsible for the negative and disrespectful attitude, and it is that probably along with the high work load and the long shifts that make me so very glad my time is up.

  • Comment on: Heightened risk of heart attack from routine NSAID use

    Nanny 1's comment 10 May, 2017 2:32 pm

    Whilst I am willing to believe NSAIDs can cause heart problems, I am rather dubious of this research. The only way the researchers could check NSAIDs were taken was from prescription charts or scripts. However we all know most people who take them do so without consulting a doctor, therefore one wonders how many of the 'control group' were also taking them.

  • Comment on: CQC brings first ever prosecution of NHS trust over safety

    Nanny 1's comment 6 March, 2017 9:01 pm

    Whilst I commend the CQC for identifying the failings, I cannot see how fining the NHS Trust is going to help them, us or those who were affected. After all it is our money; mine and yours that runs the NHS, and the more money taken from it, whether from fines or those who sue, the less there is for me and you who are the future (and perhaps) present, patients !!

  • Comment on: Robots could ‘revolutionise’ care of older patients

    Nanny 1's comment 31 January, 2017 3:40 pm

    I am afraid I must agree with 'Anonymous 30 January 2017 9:14pm, but I suspect the two tier system will comprise those under 70 and those over! If I am wrong why are just the elderly patients to be so 'treated' ?
