Nurses at risk from job cuts 'bloodbath'


The reason nurses are overlooked time and time again is because WE DO NOT MEKE OURSELVES HEARD! Time and time again, extra responsiblity is placed upon our shoulders, we grudingly accept it, nothing more is said, it becomes easier to demand more and more from us, without financial benefit. This isn't to say that money should be our only motivation, ofcourse not, but when you work for a trust that is happy to leave one qualified nurse with 24 patients for 10 hours, you see that managers aren't concerned with nurses, patient safety, or what we do at all. Unfortunately this will never change, as a profession we are weak. Nurse strikes are virtually unheard of. But what will it take to secure a safe service for the future. I don't see any of it surviving my life time, and that we can't lie comepletely on the shoulders of others.
