Nurses to wear ‘do not disturb’ soon

do-not-disturbThere are reports that nurses will be seen wearing ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs soon and this has been approved by the NHS.

A trial of this was carried out at Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, Kent, and now after the successful completion of this trial, nurses will be wearing bright red tabards with 'DO NOT DISTURB’ and across the nation, DRUG ROUND IN PROGRESS' in bold white letters on the front will be implemented in hospitals.

It is being feared that with this, the concerns of patients will not be addressed and this will be a so called victory for both organized labor and the NHS.

A NHS nurse stated, “What we do when interrupted is simply turn around to face the patient and point to the words.”

This new change has been accepted by the patients as they have not been left with an option.

Grotesque and ridiculous were the words stated by Joyce Robins with the advocacy group Patient Concern.

She said, “If you're a nurse and you can't do more than one thing at a time, you're a pretty hopeless nurse. It sends patients completely the wrong message”.
