Nursing must look 'in the mirror' to address care failings, CNO


I am but a pawn but I can hold my head up and say that every single shift I work as hard as I can and to the best of my ability to give the best patient care that I can. I have never had a day off sick since I qualified 18 months ago. Time after time the Kings and Queens of Management get it wrong and nurses on the ward get the blame because we did not raise concerns loudly or long enough (too busy caring for the huge numbers of patients). Get your heads out of your spreadsheets. Get off your backsides. Get out of your offices. Get down to the wards and see for yourselves what is happening! Do not expect me to both your job and mine!
