Hi everybody! I've been a qualified nurse for 20 years, the last 2 at a very large teaching hospital in England. I work on the Renal unit at present on transplant.
We have 10 beds on our ward and have a nurse
atient rota of 1:2/3.All the nursing staff on the ward are qualified RNs. After severe staffing shortages last year the hospital trust recruited 100 nurses from the Phillipines. Any comments?
Our Phillipino nurse is delightful and very hard-working and has just seen snow for the first time!
Last year we did 100 transplants. In England, even if a person carries a donor card it is still the decision of their relatives which determines if their organs can be used.
I would like to hear comments from nurses also working on renal units or any other area if they wish.
