Winterbourne View nurses jailed


I am glad to see this issue has been addressed. However as usual it is only the nurses involved in this terrible incident are blamed. I can't imagine that any of these nurses started off in the profession to end up behaving in such an appalling manner. The question is why did they end up like this? Is it years of abuse, bullying and dreadful working conditions? Nurses put up with a lot and in 21 years of nursing I have never met a nurse yet that hasn't been attacked both physically or verbally. Most of the time it is pushed under the carpet so to speak. This does not excuse the behaviour of these nurses but questions need to be asked why this happened at all and provision put in place to stop this from happening again and that means dealing with the violence that takes place daily on hardworking good and kind people who don't want to end up burnt out .
