Caring for our patients

Discussions abo u t the quality of caring given by nurses to patients, tend to become overlaid with emotion - older nurses accuse younger nurses of giving less meticulous care today than that was given twenty or maybe forty years ago. We all get very excited about the whole question of care, probably because care for people is basic to the philosophy of all nursing and any suggestion that care is less than good, or of doubtful quality, is deeply resented and threatening to nurses of any age.
