more than tragic, and although staffing levels are poor across the country, neglect is still neglect. all concerned deserved the sack.
They all should be ashamed, basic care was not provided, if it were this would not have been happened. People with special needs should not be over looked.
i totally agree with the last comment, our skills have widened and role has increased, we are having to see more and more patients with complex clinical and social needs, with less staff on the shop floor delivering the service, it is about time we were taken into account.
pile more and more pressure and work on the limited number of staff equates to, poor patient care, errors and mistakes. who gets the blame, not management, but the staff they and their patients are the ones that pay the ultimate price.
nursing and what it stood for is being slowly eroded away.
I wear my nursing badge with pride on my collar and it has never been a moving and handling issue. i often get interest shown by the patients i am attending to. i would however be devastated if i lost or misplaced it. I think it is sad that more nurses do not wear their badges with pride and a sense of achievement.i think it is a shame that they are no longer giving them to qualifying staff.
well voiced, and so utterly true across every trust in the country.
