@ProfJuneG @DannGooding Thanks June. I’m on the list for an urgent CT scan now.

Retweeted by RNC Lucy BNurse (Hons)Publicly embarrassing nurses is why we leave the profession in the first place. A kind DM will suffice 👌🏻I’ve never had so many wildlife issues in a house before... I’ve got birds in the roof, badgers in the garden and bees in the living room! @Stephen8McK Cheers 👍🏻 although I didn’t use either words. @Chelle39471 100% so when do you offer pain relief?

I hate to ask for pain relief… @maeveymint Made me wonder what usual practice was amongst nurses for offering pain relief compared to a patients pain scale. @maeveymint That’s great thanks.

This q… @fikawithkitty Yeah I know pain scores, but at what point do YOU offer pain relief? @TheRealIJM Benadicf bunberbatchThis is probably my favourite blog which I wrote whilst with @StNurseProject!

Retweeted by RNC Lucy BNurse (Hons) @quilks_ Okay so even if pain score was 2/10 you would still offer relief? XSo in my job I don’t take verbal pain scores very often - just look for physical things like grimace, change in BP… error waiting to happen? #humanfactors
