After several weeks in ward 24, I can honestly say I feel frustrated with the lack of nursing within the ward.
Since my last stay everything has been computerised. This I believe should make all info processing easier. Having had the experience of working in a paperless office, tying up notes of 6 patients shouldn't interfere with the role of nursing, however I feel some nurses seem to like using the excuse of iv'e got my notes to type up. Instead of the nurses spending time having to ask each other about how each patient is, why not just sit down with the patient and go through their care plan. One nurse even went on to say that the notes were based on observations. What happened to the art of nursing? There are still some nurses that genuinely care. However there are more improvements that need to be made to what is potentially a caring and safe enviroment.
