Would be very interested to know how it is invisaged that enough mentors will come forward, be trained and find time to mentor students effectively in this time of such staffing pressures and with a high number of older more experienced nurses coming up to retirement.
A very glib statement also made re numbers of doctors and time frame for their training together with the number of qualified nurses that will roll out from training - as if the nurses will all be highly qualified experts straight away!!
I am horrified to read this. Having taught so many nurses and carers bowel care for spinal patients why are staff now so ill informed?
I have seen this for myself recently when my daughter had spinal surgery within a London teaching hospital she was sent home without anyone checking her bowel activity. Result- urgent readmission and the involvement of the colorectal team. In 2018??
People sneer at the words basic nursing care, I have always taught it as essential nursing care. The nursing profession should think carefully about academia versus care instead of the two working seamlessly together.
About time, too many nurses have suffered from NMC FTP cases and been treated like criminals.
Congratulations,all of the hard work has certainly paid off.
Fraud is fraud and she should have thought of the risks she was taking. Any prison sentence will result in her being struck off. Nurses need to be aware that even a speeding offence with prosecution puts them at risk with the NMC, harsh but true.
