It has to be said that the Inspection units and safeguarding are not fit for purpose as they are not interested in protecting vulnerable adults. Even when I complained to the regional manager of CSSIW (in Wales) about an inspector who accused me of setting up a syringe driver on a resident when I was not even on duty, he denied that she had done it despite the paperwork to evidence this.

They are such powerful organisations that to complain as an individual gets you nowhere except to be flagged up as a troublemaker. They then put the word around to other homes and as Shoutoutproud has found out, they won't even consider you for a job..

have totally turned my back on nursing and have got a few cleaning jobs and am about to start doing courier work locally to me. I have never been happier!! No stress, no being stabbed in the back and no false accusations made against me. The only people I feel sorry for are the residents.

Nursing/care work has become an extremely vindictive area to work in which is a real shame. Why is it that the people who don't give a damn get better thought of than the few who do care?
