All new nurses could face checks on compassion and values


The NHS should work for patients, and for the staff. 'Anonymous | 11-Sep-2012 11:16 am When acute care is designed to rush patients through the system as quickly and cheaply as possible nurses do not lack empathy and compassion they often don't get the chance to show it.' If as a patient/relative your own experience of the care is that it seemed 'uncaring', and you cannot see that this is because of lack of staff, you won't know the staff are being prevented from caring. But acute care - as in emergency care - is different from, for example, care of the elderly, isn't it ? If there are too few staff, then let the patients know this - then the patients might push the message !

Everyone should be treated decently - patients, nurses, relatives, cleaners, doctors and even managers !
