Empowering nurses, frontline staff, patients and relatives


Anonymous | 27-Sep-2013 8:12 pm You think Mid Staffs is the only place in trouble? I take it you don't bother to read the news then? How about The Keogh Mortality Review of 14 trusts? 11 Hospital Trusts placed in Special Measures? There will be more. I am fully cognisant of the NMC Code of Conduct. Are you? There are approximately 400,000 nurses working within the NHS.(Tens of thousands fewer than there were several years ago.)Why aren't they being heard? Could it be that they are not speaking out because they are too afraid, too lazy, too selfish, too ill prepared, too easily cowed, too stupid? The answer to that one is up for discussion. What is in no doubt is that too many nurses are working in conditions which put patients at risk and (for whatever reason) are doing nothing about it. Denying and/or defending that only throws up more obstacles to solutions.
