Honesty laws and HCA regulation would make NHS safer, say nurses


"The majority of nurses thought HCA regulation would be of significant benefit to patient care and 73% said it would be of “great benefit” to nurses in terms of improving their working day." How and why? Registration of HCAs will not change the way that they're managed or trained. If managers performed proper checks before employment and trained them appropriately, and ensured that they are suitable managed then patient care may improve. Nurses who think that registration will "improve their working day" presumably mean that HCAs then become the regulator's problem, and that's simply misguided.
