Nurses should be banned from top NMC job, says super regulator

Comment

I can recall in the NHS "service managers" who come from other disciplines such as occupational therapy, social workers, heading units. None of them had a clue, and one such case arose when shower cords were removed and awful fitted things installed with a push switch which stopped every five mins (extremely annoying) Now as a nurse I know the importance of a hand held shower, Eg, promoting circulation, washing under large skin flaps etc. What I am getting at is...what the hell has happened ? Matrons and senior nurses ran hospitals once upon a time. Of course any top position within the NMC should be headed by a trained nurse, and a trained nurse with several qualifications, RMN, RGN etc. Only a nurse can understand a nurse. The NMC is becoming very scary indeed. We are so concious of being "Investigated" for some petty things like forgetting to sign an RX sheet that we spend more valuable time on administration work instead od participating in client care..lets face it as lond as all the paperwork is complete the NMC is happy...lip service to nursing care.
