'It’s time to tell the public that nurses are not maids'


'They must learn that nursing requires a broad range of skills – and unquestioning servitude is not in the job description.' How many patients do think 'unquestioning servitude' is in the job description ? As opposed to wishing to be treated as an ill person, rather than as a collection of clinical problems ? I don't know - has anybody got the evidence, in an 'evidence-based' sense, about how many patients do believe that nurses are 'room service' ?
