Extent of ongoing abuse in nursing homes revealed


The days of GRAHAM PINK, the C/N on nights 20 - 30 years ago in Stepping Hill Hospital, who blew the whistle on poor care/neglect due to low staff levels have not moved on. He was pilliored, "offered" demotion then sacked. Many years ago, I stood up for patient care once, due to poor staff levels, and inappropriate, staff in dementia care. I voiced concern to management, and asked that for patient care, it was addressed. Not surprisingly, it ended my contract - under the auspices of something that was absolutely nothing to do with my concern. The decision cost management and patient care dearly, as many longterm reliable, staff resigned on principle, and cited that as their reason. They were then invited to meet management then asked to submit other resignation letters with different reasons - I wonder why....has nursing progressed - no. It represses standards by how it treats those on its staff who have/voice concerns.
