The health care system needs to care more for our nurses .

The fact that nurses are underpaid is well known .

The fact that nurses are over worked is well known .

The fact that we get old and sick is well known .

The fact that nurses are often having to update their skills , gain further education , become aware of new procedures and policies and take on board conflict resolutions with their employers is well known .

So why then are nurses the lowest paid and most unappreciated people who continue to hold down jobs most people would not even consider as an occupation .

The answer is because they care .
So it seems to me it's only fair that we care for them in return .

The future of our health care system must begin at the bottom , with those who do the work , our nurses .'
Without nurses the system cannot survive .

A tribute poem for nurses.

Safe In The Nurses Hands .

By Paul McCann

Nurses were there when we were born

and they're with us till we die .

When others say they can't or won't,

then nurses will say they'll try .

Nurses have lists of people there
who daily need tending to .

Nurses do daily things that have become difficult to do .

Personal hygiene is more than soap
or sponging in a bath .

Ask nurses is it important

and they'll say to you "Not half ."

Prevention against infection
is always a daily task .

Hand over greetings and weekly meetings ,

what more can we ask .

Dressing wounds and medication spoons,

late afternoons and nights .

Handing out procedures

of responsibilities and rights .

When work loads are heavy

and the evaluations are done .

Nurses together join hands

and lift the burden as one .

If more incentives are not there to encourage people to pursue a nursing career then the hope of rebuilding the narrowing rank and file within nursing will be in serious threat .

Government and employers must start to address these areas .
So the next time you're in a hospital , or need a nurse at home , or visit a nursing home or need help with a loved one who may be disabled or at deaths door , don't take for granted the person who cares .
