Focus of nursing 'fundamentally wrong', says Mid Staffs chair


I think most nurses would like to hold patients hands, sit and reassure them more. Unfortunately due to inadequate staffing on the wards and more and more paperwork there just isn't enough time. To be told we do not show kindness and compassion is an insult, the majority of nurses are ran ragged from coming onto shift to going home. Sir Moss should come and work on a ward and see the changes that have happened over the years and how much more demanding our role is.
