Nurse to go home: the Left 13 demanding patients

- I am a nurse at a drøntravlt medical ward

- yesterday I worked one hour over to help my colleague.

- And I went home kind of the bad conscience of leaving her alone with 13 demanding patients to the night.

And she had it bad, that I had not gone to the time.

so begins Ida's letter to the nation! on the reality she experiences in the Danish health care system. Ida - as you might know from the post as a Nurse was embarrassed: Not enough food to patients and Give me a 3. hand: Nurse satisfied with 14,000 paid per. month would like to change the way people outside the system are talking about healthcare - because she seems to the whole nursing profession has been transformed into a society where it is almost a virtue to påråbe themselves the victim-role! And it is a sin, she writes:

- I have in-depth knowledge of the nurse's inappropriate workflow and unhealthy working environment, but I'm about to be satiated!

I also know to be full of the same pessimistic rhetoric about the deteriorating conditions in the Danish healthcare system!

yes, the politicians have indisputable starved health sector!

- Yes, we are busy, why the daily work going on in the inappropriately high speed!

- Yes, we are under tremendous time pressure!

- Yes, it is knaldhamrende hard!

- Yes, it threatens patient safety!

- Yes, we do our absolute best and then to turn the nose homewards, with a discontented heart!

And yes, overbebyrdelsen can for some be a direct source of stress!

- No, sparerunder and drastic cuts in the health service is not justifiable!

- No, effektivitering and increased production requirements is not appropriate!

- No, the fewer warm hands and a larger patientflow do not result in optimal care!

- No, patients do not receive satisfactory care bl.a. in the form of the involvement, presence and continuity!

And no, Lars Løkke may have never spent one second in a hospital bed on a overbelagt section!

- We know it well. And we know that it is all-essential that the deterioration in working conditions will be disseminated, so that the conditions hopefully will be changed.

- But where are my colleagues agonizing competent!

- Where are my co-workers extremely caring!

- Where are my colleagues, tenacious, committed, and still determined to spread the good energy, and where are my colleagues eager to perform a nice piece of work!

- My colleagues respect each other! My colleagues are sovereign to help each other!

- My co-workers laugh with each other! My co-workers cry with each other! And my co-workers can complain to - and about each other!

- My colleagues are very good to get the daily workflow to roll!

- My colleagues are very good to be aware of each other!

- My colleagues are very good to cooperate and share the workload balanced!

And my co-workers meetings are always in the watch with renewed renewed positivity and renewed entusiame!

- We can not manage the workload in an optimal way. We can not handle the time constraints in a satisfactory manner and we may not perform nursing in a wholehearted manner.

- But we try. And we do it well, writes Ida, but what do you think?
