Empowering nurses, frontline staff, patients and relatives

Anonymous | 27-Sep-2013 5:33 pm I am intrigued. How much "feedback" will it take before something changes? Seems to me that there is plenty of feedback already. Just what more do patients have to say and how many times do they have to say it, before they'll get the care they want and deserve? I am also at a loss as to how anyone would think that "...services and care can be constantly improved and tailor made as much as possible to patient need.", in a climate where services are clearly driven by economic considerations and not patient need, never mind wish. "........but most are willing to always try their best with what they have and act on the patients' behalf to try and get more, such as, for example better and higher levels of staffing." Like in the Stafford Hospital, for example? Nurses are the weakest and most subservient of professions. They do not 'act on their patients' behalf' to obtain better staffing levels. This a very important and evidence based fact. To assert otherwise is deluded, wrong or both.
