NMC under fire for lack of support on swine flu surge


What about care homes? I work in the so called Private sector as a RMN (Part 3) working with a range of clients from mental health to Learning Disabilities and ages 18 to 98! I have experience of General Nursing through out my career so feel able to deal with Physical care But what about others whom i have worked with who have had problems dealing with someone with a bad cold let alone Flu!? OK People need supervision and should ork within their limits any idiot knows that! What the NMC needs to show it will offer a miniscul mount of support to someone who may get into difficulties IF they stray a little. BUT Then the NMC is not their for Registered Nurses is it? Its to Protect the General Public from us wild Registered Nurses! Time for Change i say Give the RCN more clout and chuck out the Quango!
