Comment on: England fans urged to have HIV test
Anonymous, please don't start nitpicking at Africa as if it's no worse than any other country with HIV. It's the worst place on the planet to pick up any disease because they are all rife there. As well as many young people in the early stages of the disease out there not knowing they even have HIV (around 80% are belived to not know) there are also many more who know they have the disease but not the implications of it. Why? There are a million reasons why. Do your research. HIV is world-wide, yes, but it is predomenantly an african epidemic.
Thanks for this really well-written and informative article. Having some GP insight too is also usefull. I work in Hospital Dermatology at the moment and emoilliants are the most used method of treatment for alot of conditions, particually eczema, but often overlooked and not enough is known about them. The same could be said for Eczema too, a condition so often overlooked, particually in the young, and often overlooked too in elderly for it's mysterious appearence at such an age. Thank you!
Anonymous, I'm so glad roper has worked for you, but do you believe the standard of care would slip at all really in hindsight if the care plan formulations were scrapped tomorrow? Don't you believe that having a set nursing framwork in your area of practice limits nursing doing things their own way sometimes? It's all good and said that your area does it one way, and have done so for donkey years, but does it make it the right way, or does it set boundries within the scope of good nursing practice? And is it also really relevent to all the patients that walk/are wheeled through your door? I was always under the asumption that the likes of roper and tierney had different models do suit diffierent circumstances and patient need needs, you cannot possibly comment back and say one size really fits all?
Comment on: Robot nurses: sent to destroy?
And also, why are 95% of the commentators on this website starting their every comment with "I trained back in the 70's" or "I've been doing this for donkey years back before this career malarky". You all bang the drum about patient care and wards not being how they used to and management all the time, yet I actually do believe the majority of you all are managers. Ward Sister/Managers, you're all the same. The only two sub-genres of Nurses I know that come to the Nursing times are me, Student Nurses, and you, Management. Everyone else in Nursing is too busy clawing their way up the 5,684,99 points in band 5 to realise there are no band 6's. So don't pretend the majority of you all know what is going on in the wards, if you think this kind of stuff is relevent then you obviously are so out of touch.
