Do nurses care too much?

Do nurses care too much?

Persaud’s perspective

Dr Raj Persaud
Consultant Psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital, London

The kind of nurse who consults with me in my outpatient clinic is a high-achiever, who has moved rapidly through the career grades to get to the top of the profession at quite a young age. But then mysteriously s/he gets depressed and needs time off work following a relatively minor incident in which a patient expresses dissatisfaction with her/his standard of care.
