Criminologists identify range of 'red flags' for killer nurses


Yet another article that will give the nurse bashing media an excuse to use nurses as scapegoats for the ills of the NHS. With 3/4 million - give or take a few thousand - or so nurses in the NHS/UK there are bound to be a few incompetent/cruel dodgy nurses who only enter the profession in order to carry out their own perverse agenda. How many of the 600+ MP's are self serving narcissists or paedophiles; or the civil servants who 'support them? How many bankers have a social conscience? I think the odds of finding a psychopath amongst this lot, who control all of our lives and often act without impunity, is far higher despite the fewer numbers than registered nurses. Agree with the summation of Richard Gill above. To me, this is yet another reason for me not to recommend nursing to young people just starting out on the career ladder. They are unlikely to climb very far up the ladder and will be paid peanuts to be bashed by patient groups and the media alike.
