'We have allowed the nursing role to be denigrated'


I think it is a very scary time to be a nurse at the moment and I can only think of one reason why I still do it.. if I dont, who will look after these vulnerable in-need patients? From a nurse branded recently as lazy by some work colleagues because I don't rush through my obs and drugs, I do them properly, and I stop if necarsary and deal with individual patient needs such as toileting. Just because it delays me doing the washes doesn't mean I dont want to wash, it means I only have one pair of hands and I care about nursing properly!!!!!!
