MAU......... is what it is, but as my relative lay extremely ill, I had the opurtunity to observe the medical team at work. The pace of the nursing team is swift and at times robotic like, with accuite tunnel vission and uncaring fasard. I feel that if they were to be any other way the department would tumble into a heap. The nursing team looks to manage the workload on a knife edge. Whom ever completed the task and travel template needs to reevaluate and update the model. I strongly believe the unqualified nurses are underestimated and undervalued, they should be allowed to do more. They deserve more responsibility. Stand back and cast your eyes over the department. The pay is an issue between the nurses, listen to the grumbles and you will here. Doctors are different, some will give patients and relatives time to understand and ask questions, whilst others are almost to the point of arrogance and make you feel that enough questions have been asked and that you have run out of time. The man who I believe to be the top consultant is a most caring man and I hope in time that this rubs off on the entire team in MAU. In all workforces there will be the occasional person that's not of the required calibra and will be managed out of the business. I hope the above will be of some use to enable you to see your department from another view.
