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


Our glorious leader addresses us again. I particularly enjoyed this paragraph: “I remember talking to staff nurses and consultants [in the 80s and 90s] who could not take it anymore because every day they knew that the care they were giving was substandard.” Therein lies the problem: the 80’s and the 90’s are probably the last time this bloated desk-jockey actually had a conversation with a real nurse; she's clueless as to what nurses are putting up with on a daily basis. I find her comments extremely offensive. Although I take comfort in the fact that she is selflessly chaining herself to her desk until October to “oversee the changes” although I think it probably has more to do with accruing full years in her pension - who said that?
