Time to care...

Jacqueline Richardson

Jacqueline has been a nurse for the last thirty years and her personal opinion of what makes a good nurse has not changed in all of that time. A diagnosis of cancer, going through treatment and having a temporary tracheostomy reinforced for her what is important for patients. It is not necessarily the clinical skills, the documentation or the care planning that always matters to patients, but rather the small acts of kindness and compassion that take just a little more time.
