Campaign to highlight realities of nursing

A new campaign launched by the Royal College of Nursing aims to show the reality of nursing, and to explore the reasons behind failures in care.

The campaign features a film - first shown at the RCN's Congress earlier this year - which depicts nurses administering drips, clearing up vomit and being shouted at by patients

The Patients Association says the bulk of calls to its helpline relate to poor nursing care - and that the solution is to boost numbers of support staff.
