"Unpassionate nurses"

About: Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

after 15 years as a nurse I have never seen such uncaring behavior from a nurse and ha after being asked to clean up a elderly immobile gentleman who had soiled himself to prevent pressure sores etc. grabbing aprons and gloves and shouting at the elderly gentleman. The said nurse had beautiful painted nails which surely the sister should have spotted at the start of the shift. Very disappointed In this today. We care because we care. This wasn't felt today.
