The image of nursing: The handmaiden


from Anonymous | 11-Oct-2010 1:53 pm It is so sad that such hostile remarks and attitudes as those above pervade and destroy working relationships on wards and throughout the organisation. This has damaging effects on the reputation of the ward and the team as well as on recruitment and retention of ward staff, also with the results that doctors would prefer not to have to work there. those nurses who always pass their own judgements on others are often those who show no tolerance of others, with the exception perhaps of some of their patients, and provide no peer support which is essential for the well-being of all connected with the ward in some way and the inter-disciplinary team.
