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


I agree that self reflection is valuable and an integral part of practice now, as it should be. I agree that we as the people in the service are best placed to see what is happening and potentially report on that. I would ask the reverent CNO then how does the obvious and repeated discrepancy between what is being issued from above and what is happening 'on the floor'. Not only that, I would ask what she thinks might be happening in that space in between that does not allow for the reporting to become visible, heard or apparent, regardless of whether forms are filled in or not. How have we arrived at this point Dame Christine?
