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


All these comments are valid but as usual nurses are bickering about it and blaming one another for the problem - we need to stand as one and be a united front - i believe most nurses are caring and treat our patients and their families with compassion and kindness - like so many have stated already there are time constraints which i have for many years complained to management about - when met with clinical team managers in nhs tayside and their answer is to shut up stop complaining and get on with the job because if you dont you are seeing as not providing care! its been frustrating but unless changes happen at the top (reducing the amount of managers and pen pushers - allowing for more nurses on the floor) things cant change - every interaction i have with patients and their families is always one that i offer a listening ear, i am kind compassionate and caring BUT it is for a tiny amount of time that is due to staffing - NOT because i am not a good nurse. Support of NMC and RCN are needed here to make a plan to make a change.
