'The profession is in dire straits, so few are willing to fight for it!'

  • Comment

A look at what you’ve been talking about on Nursingtimes.net this week…

On: One in four nurses would strike as job fears increase

“No wonder the profession is in so dire straits when so few of you out there are willing to fight for it!”

 

On: Call for harder line on flexible hours

“It’s the sheer fact that the shortages that these people leave are not filled, therefore leaving the ward short staffed. Something needs to be done about this.”

 

On: Is it ever ok for nurses to accept gifts from patients?

“As most token gifts of appreciation are given as a patient is discharged, how can that be interpreted “….as an an attempt to gain preferential treatment”…isn’t it rather too late for that as they disappear out the door?”

 

On: Call obese people fat, says minister

“We must not treat patients as stupid, fat people know they are fat, and all the while health professionals tiptoe around them with words such as ‘obesity problem’ it lets them think of being fat as a medical condition, not as something which is their power to change. Let’s call them fat, put the ball back in their court.”

 

On: Peter Carter praises nurses put at risk by reforms

“If our contribution to improving health care is so greatly valued, what will happen when we are gone?”
