Student nurse wins award for 'outstanding' compassion during prison placement


Exhale he could show how a non judgemental attitude is vital part of nursing prisoners at the prison where I worked , where staff attitudes were appalling. One comment about a high profile child abuser being put up against a wall and shot was the least straw. The pain management for prisoners was disgraceful. My verbal and written complaints fell on deaf ears. Not sure if the management agreed or were fearful of staffing crisis if they were dismissed. The lead nurse was a bully and her manager fell into line as it was easier than challenge the bad proactive that was entrenched within the group. All nurses were from Eastern Europe and had no compassion, preferring to be part of the prisoners punishment than promote a caring environment
