Winterbourne View nurses jailed
Mmm..interesting but dare I say predictable ranges of comments. Its necessary to understand socio-cultural effects re the Winterbourne nurses. Wayne Rodgers was clearly a self opinionated and very dominant character who, unrestrained applied his personal interpretation of effective "care" leadership in the absence of day-to-day and moreover hands-on ethically driven practice-led leadership and against a restraint training background that recommended "kicking in the bollocks" as the final means of self protection. I strongly suspect that the nurses, who I understand were criticised for force-administering medication to service users under restraint were quite possibly kindly enough on individual bases and it would be interesting to know something of the views of service users towards those nurses. It is quite possible that the nurses were operating within impossible circumstances and they were faced with whistle blowing options that their training certainly never prepared them for in terms of taking on hugely powerful interests not least of which would have been messers Rogers and Co who would have been imedietelly inclined to square-up to their accusers. Remember, had Panorama been unlucky for whatever reason (his spy camara was nearly discovered in the show) or staff had gone sick etc and the Panorama team had decided not to transmit then those abuses would still be occuring and those nurses continuing to quite possibly agonise about what they should do. As a wise old charge nurse once said "there by the grace of God go we".
