Nurses now "Too clever to care"

#2
Once again this will give the grey Mafia a power lift. The vast majority of the commissioned ones deem themselves too qualified to lower themselves to such a level.

Why would I want to talk to a patient? I am there to work out his nursing/care plan!

Anyway the size of their assess, they can't afford to sit around any more than they do! :twisted: [/i]

Well I was thinking of going back to nursing, but I would be embarrassed to be part of a profession which professes to care for people but doesn't see that physical contact with patients is an essential way of showing that care. How else are they going to assess a patient's skin condition and ensure they are eating properly unless they plan on just standing round watching someone else bed bathing and feeding patients?

I love the Grey Mafi and wish I could turn back the tide of time to my youth where I could change cap badge and become one of the illustrious corps.

Oh to be able to eat pies to my heart content, sit on my posterior all day and dish out orders to the lowly HCA. Then retire to the Mess to eat more pies (GInsters of course, no low fat ones for me!) and a few G&Ts.

Then I could have been posted to a Field Unit and fick up the careers of a few CMTs, various exercises and blame it all on PMT (even though I am male!) and the fact that I'm a QA and you CMTs are so bad and don't like Nurses.

It is about time we were recognised for the high level intensity of the job QAs perform and to be frank patients just get in the way and the less they have to do with the winging gits the better really. Lets them develop their PDP.

Quoted from the memories of CPL J. Abbadehut, RAMC (wishing I was a QA!)

:roll: Sorry to ask, but do dental nurses have the same qualifications as an RGN's (or whatever they call themselves these days)? The same level of responsibility both to the patients treatment, and their welfare ? Do they have the same input into diagnosis & rehabilitation? And if they do, how is thier roll so different to the hygienist?

The responsibilities of the 2 don't even compare! Your average D grade nurse can be expected to be in charge of some 30 acutely ill patients whilst your Dental nurse wipes the dentists fevered brow if he uses the drill too much!

Ahh the memories of heading back to the Woolwich NAFFI bop after a few jars at the "Fox & Firkin" with Kebab in hand.

I cant remember anyone misbehaving at all at any of the bops, then again I cant remember any of what happened at most of them!! 8O

I still shed a tear at the passing of the regular wednesday night at the Rugby Club.

P.S. I cant imagine whose names you are referring to?? Thank God I behaved myself during my years there :wink: .
