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


tinkerbell | 10-Aug-2011 0:34 am do you remember the trust, I think it was in Cornwall, mentioned in the national newspapers where nurses had to record the boxes of chocolates they received with the size and estimate of the cost? I think there must have been a mode at that time to record tokens of appreciation of nurses. makes one wonder how managers with a serious job to do find the time for such unspeakable trivialities and childish games! as for managers who are paid for on call at the weekend just telling a senior nurse to do their best really does rather give the impression that they have no sense of responsibility and are rather superfluous. if they were replaced with front line staff how many could be engaged for the cost of their salary. How much longer is it going to take for the NHS and government to realise that patient care requires more front line staff rather than too many beings sitting in offices playing tiddlywinks 9 to 5, 5 days a week and how many more patients are going to suffer while these beings are still trying to work out this very simple fact?
