I know there is some movement in the area but it looks to me as if there is a reluctance bordering on a prejudice. All this push to recruit new people to profession seems to be failing to some extent. Personally I think experienced nurses are to wise to the situation and will either refuse to come back or come back with a list of restrictions about what can or cannot be done with them. When I was new I was willing to go pretty much along with the program.

Many other issues,but just the absolute apothy stands out.Now I will duck, but, Truth is Truth
If that is the truth, and you both know about it, then I sure hope you who are aware of this behavior are doing something about it...turning the deadbeat nursing staff in to the proper authorities, etc. NO NURSE should sit by and knowingly know that abuse of this type is going on with patients.
I'm a nurse who has been out of the field for five years, but anxious to return. WHY??? Because I love being a nurse. I love nursing! I love nursing patients! Yes, I want to see change occur in nursing for the better, and that is why I still want to very much be a part of a fantastic career such as nursing. If I EVER witness a nurse neglecting a patient, I won't hesitate to bring it to her/his attention FIRST. If receiving a warning doesn't stop them from doing what they do, THEN I will report them. Ignore it? NEVER!
