|Location||In between dimensional worldlines, United Kingdom|
|Introduction||I am a university educated registered nurse. We had a hell of a lot of hands on practice as well as our academic courses. The only people who say that you don't need a brain or an education to be an RN are the people who do not have any direct experience of nursing in acute care on today's wards. I have yet to meet a nurse who thinks that she is above providing basic care. I work with nurses who are completely unable to provide basic care due to ward conditions. I have lived and worked in 3 countries and have seen more similarities than differences. I have been a qualified nurse for nearly 15 years. I never used to use foul language until working on the wards got to me. It's a mess everywhere, not just the NHS. Hospital management is slashing the numbers of staff on the ward whilst filling us up with more patients than we can handle... patients who are increasingly frail. After an 8-14 hour shift without stopping once we have still barely scratched the surface of being able to do what we need to do for our patients.|
|Interests||Loves puppies, babies, kittens, chocolate, walks on the beach, romance, tulips, anything pink, a nice glass of wine. I hate mean people and I go nuts when elderly vulnerable patients do not get the best care available. I want to see all patients get the best care-safe, dignified, and clinically excellent.|
