  • very defensive and inefficacious - seems unable to defend her actions. maybe a nurse from the old school who is task orientated, submissive to authority and does not question best practice. if it was my mum she was looking after it would inspire no confidence in me whatsoever and I would probably investigate further with her manager. there seems to be little empathy and understanding of the basic needs of the patient, poor interpersonal relationship and lack of psychological support. this standard of care could be damaging or even fatal to the patient.

  • it seems that sadly nurses do not all share the same professional and ethical values or standards of care and from this deduction it would appear that training is inconsistent across the NHS. this may be one of the causes of so many complaints, the poor image nurses feel that the public have of them and indeed they may have of themselves and their difficulties working in interdisciplinary teams with doctors, managers, student nurses and any other healthcare professionals.
