Nurse looks back at 50 years in the profession
Ms Bennet I probably worked with you as I was a pupil nurse at the DRI from 1977-79. I particularly recall my first set of 6 12 hour night shifts on the busy surgical floor where we were also 'on take' Patients on fluid charts were required to have their hrly oral fluids and at midnight they had to be added up and turned over and you would be in trouble if they were totalled inaccurately. Again I only had an auxillary nurse for the trained nurse was shared between the 2 wards each with 32 beds. I recall the bromptons cocktail forterminally ill patients and testing urine for diabetics required tablets that fizzed and became hot in the glass test tubes. I spent 3 months on my first ward orthopaedics where I learned basic care starting with scrubbing the used bed pans in the sluice following the round wearing a very long heavy rubber apron. At least when we trained then we learned the importance of feeding patients and basic nursing care something todays nurses seem to think is not important anymore
