This is a contentious issue that is annually discussed in our ward, and I'm interested to hear the opinions and views of this forum about nurses and N/As who become pregnant, particularly in the NHS.
Should they be allowed to work until 8 1/2 months ?
Should it depend on where they work ?
What if their unable to fulfill their job description. ?
Should others have to make allowances for them ?.
Should others have to deal with aggressive pts to prevent possible injury ?
Should others take the difficult to handle pts.?
Should the qualified nurse and N/As be given different concessions.?
Are pregnant nurses ever transferred to less demanding areas ?
Wouldn't that be stressful because its an unknown area and fewer friends ?
