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

Comment

Wow, tips? The only tips I hear about involved a lot of swearing and anatomically impossible instructions - usually given when they recieve £1.70 bus fare to get home from hospital instead of the generous taxi fare or train fare they hoped to get in cash! Either that or we are the visible target for their frustrations when they dont get the admission/scan/sick note they want. Doctors get the thanks, nurses often get the anger, it has been that way as long as I can remember but I also try and remember that it is only a small proportion of patients/public that do behave this way.
