  • Comment on: Parents of stillborn babies face indignity

    Yeah this article is correct that there are many hospitals and nurses that are not trained to care for those grieving family who experience stillbirth or neonatal loss. And I think this is one of the things that healthcare, hospital admins and healthcare personnel neglect to focus.


  • Comment on: Male nurses more likely to be sanctioned by NMC

    nursteph's comment 7 July, 2010 1:17 am

    Sexism at hospitals is really common wherein the number of female nurses are higher than male nurses. And despite bad comments about the specifying and discriminating name "male nurses" still "male nurses" are used despite using "nurses". However this situation commonly happens in hospital environment but in the outside world men are the superior gender than female.

    Smoking is indeed bad for the smoker's health and even for those innocent non-smokers. Whoa!


  • Comment on: Advanced nurses 'diluting' junior doctors' training

    That's why there are cases of doctors who again go back to school and studies nursing...Whew!


  • Comment on: Murder charge nurse 'did not deliberately harm patients'

    nursteph's comment 9 June, 2010 6:58 am

    I definitely agree that the article had given very minimal info about the real event of the story of this nurse.

    However what came to my attention is that the "murder charge nurse" is already dead and no one's gonna be blame about this but her and the hospital. They say that it is a “combination of individual and systems failure”. Yeah right. But how about if Grigg-Booth is still living? Will they ever blame and sanction the hospital? I think they will solely blame and penalize the nurse.
