Nurses must ‘reflect’ new end of life care standards


The vision seems helpful. Does this mean then that elderly people with complex needs will be communicated with adequately on a daily basis in line with their personal needs instead of being treated as objects then dosed up inappropriately with anti psychotic drugs when they retaliate? When will this vision materialise? -because it is so distressing to see so-called carers delivering negligent treatment to vulnerable people because they are following orders from the so-called "Responsible Individuals" in charge of care homes who are cutting costs on the recommendations, I believe, from Clinical Commissioning Groups, who are, I believe, being too enthusiastic about keeping costs for care of the elderly low because they are advised mainly, I believe, by people like accountants and doctors who have not a clue usually about how to deliver cost effective residential care?
