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


I get a bit tired reading the same old ananymous "manager bashing" at the back of every article. You obviously are unaware that a lot of managers are put under enormous stress, struggle to fit in their workload, regularly work longer hours for no pay, come in at the weekend for no pay and feel that they are cleaning up every one elses cr*p on a daily basis. Sound familiar???? I am a manger and I see myself as a nurse first and foremeost and I am on my wards more than once on a daily basis. Yes wards are busy but please save me the constant carping that it is the managers fault. Do you think it was all sunshine and roses when we were Staff Nurses? The truth is nursing is a very stressful profession but it is also rewarding or else none of us would be doing it.
