Nurses wear uniform with pride

13th May 2011

Nurses at Portsmouth Hospitals Trust have pledged to treat every patient like a member of their own family as part of an initiative celebrating international nurses day.

They marked Florence Nightingale’s birthday by launching the Nursing and Midwifery Framework for 2011, which recognises the contribution nurses and midwives make to patient care. Nurses and midwives from across the trust have signed up to the framework pledging to wear their uniform with pride and manned a stand in the main entrance of the hospital to share with patients and visitors what nursing is about.

As a retired State Registered nurse it is nice to read that the nurses in Portsmouth are going to wear their uniforms with pride but this should happen from day one of a nurses training, whether or not people recognise the good care we give our standards should remain high, always putting your patients first and foremost.

I married a RGN SCM fifty three years ago.
I recently spent a month in hospital and concluded political corretness has replaced competence.
This is due to Managmeent failures.
Getting rid of the dominant Matron is the equivalent of getting rid of the sergeant Major in the army.
Bring back matron and the quality she demanded.
