  • Comment on: Francis calls for rethink on minimum nurse staffing

    Thank you Yvonne Bates, couldn't have said it better myself. I too have experience with 1:4 ratios (thank you victoria, Australia...where I trained, though every government tried to get rid off it as soon as it came in!) & I think it definitely needs to happen over here in the U.K. (admittedly i'm in theatres atm & not wards full time....though i still do it to 'keep my hand in' so to speak).

    But I think all the Unions, senior nurses (yes CNO i'm talking to you) need to start standing up for their profession (strike anyone?) more because the sense of apathy & lack of confidence I see in nurses over here to affect any positive change overall all is quite scary. But I don't know how we can change it :(
