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


'and find myself telling patients that they will not 'get better' just by lying there, and whilst they have two good arms and legs they should use them.' Little one, just to check something. So your hospital encourages patients who can walk, to walk around and do things for themselves, and to 'socialise with each other' if they wish to, etc ? I agree with what you say, but if you want patients to somehow 'be tied to their bed', that isn't true 'independence', is it ?
