Nurse looks back at 50 years in the profession


Anonymous | 11-Jan-2013 7:18 pm from Anonymous | 11-Jan-2013 5:17 pm seems things were far more uniform then as well as I can relate to the experiences of most nurses of that era and the high standards our patients enjoyed. As a very new junior staff nurse I was very upset when a nursing officer came into the office asking for Nurse So and So. I did not know whether she was on the ward or where she was although I helped to look for her. Just after the No. xyz left, my colleague walked in through the door so I went to the stair well where Madam had gone down only two flights of stairs, and with nobody else around, called gently to her than Ann was now in the office. I thought I was being helpful! Well, when I was back in the office the door flew open and I was severely reprimanded by this Madam for (1) calling after her down the stairs and (2) referring to my colleague by her given name! Having often been cited for my quiet and good manners I was very taken aback at her ferocious manner.
