Charity warns of neonatal nurse shortage


I am not surprised that there is a shortage of neonatal nurses in units with the highest levels of care. These are the units that often expect too much - working with too few staff, no time for adequate breaks and encouraging staff to work bank shifts to cover. On top of that many expect staff to work a mixture of day and night duty during every week. If as 'anonymous 2 Nov ' states, senior nurses are now being asked to effectively take a pay cut, I think -quite rightly- management will discover that there is only so much nursing staff will put up with.
