Sounds like a little common sense would have been more appropriate regarding the cap.  I still think a traditional uniform is far more smarter than what is out there today.

Not hair colour but vaguely hair related.I worked with an African agency nurse in the 80s ,in the age when caps were still part of the female nursing uniform.Not usually a problem but this lady had a shaved head which made this rather impractical.The sister insisted that she would be improperly dressed without a ridiculous paper cap.Attempts to keep one on her head with sellotape proved rather ineffective so she was given dispensation to go without! You know what it didn't make her any less effective as a nurse.

Hi.

And yes, things are a little quiet around this time of the year, but perhaps some of that is due to the impending/university holidays.  We seem to pick up a lot of traffic in term time, especially in the periods associated with dissertation/thesis writing.  But of course that is only a small factor, as we get a fair number of visitors every week - between two and a half to three thousand every week right now.

Around 14 thousand (14,011) people visited during the last month. Perhaps one of the ways I could help would be to add visitor numbers to the home page? If only to indicate that we are not dead/dying!!

But overall numbers do not really cause personal anxiety - it is the lack of interaction on the forum that could perhaps use a bit of defib! For that I too must bear some responsibility. Believe me, I do examine various ways to try overcome this - so far not very successfully.  Perhaps nursing history is simply not a popular sport...

But the site in general is alive and well - considering also that we do not accept advertising and spend more that a little time keeping it secure and available completely free of charge.

But yes, more discussion/debate would be very welcome - all suggestions are welcome - how about nurse hair-colour for starters?!

Will.

Hi..

Just back from holiday.   Does anyone know what happened to the Lot?  It must surely have gone for more than the estimates?

I used to go into the specimen toilet at work where there was a hatch that led int the sluice.  When I knew one of the nurses I worked with was going into the sluice I would go int the specimen toilet, knock the small hatch open and make a gargling sigh noise, promptly followed by a loud scream that could be heard in the A&E Department!  Gave me many a laugh.

Can you recommend it Barry? I keep meaning to visit the museum at the Royal Worcester Infirmary, but haven't yet made it.

Nights seemed to bring out the devil in some of us.One night when the student went for her break,I emptied one shelf of the large linen cupboard, waited until shortly before she returned and climbed in and the others closed the doors.The other staff asked her to fetch some sheets in the unlit corridor cupboard and as she reached in I grasped her arm. The ensuing scream was explained to the patients as just a confused patient.

when we worked the nightshift in A&E we used to phone the local police station to get biscuits from the all night garage

That was a lovely set and a nice piece of Nursing history.
