Indemnity may be made compulsory for nurses


We don't earn enough money to be forking out for insurance cover, which would then go up every year. I can see it now, posters all over the wards encouraging the public to sue nurses for petty incidents like forgetting to clean a hairbrush after use, etc etc. I have been a nurse for 32 years and I can gladly say I am happy to be near the end of my career and not just starting out!
