'We should not dismiss the value of Nightingale wards'


If all patients are concerned with is nurses noticing how ill they feel & are not worried about such things as privacy using bedpans etc why do so many pay for private en suite rooms - either through private patient or amenity care? Research has also shown that patients cared for in single rooms & small units recover faster than those in large wards.
