Quotation of the Day for February 2, 2010

"This is why Granny has bedsores. This is why there are no nurses on the wards. This is why the Macmillan nurses do not do hands-on nursing. This is why district nurses no longer do bed baths. These nurses are all "graduates" now. They have their BSc (Bedpan) from the University of Formerpoly and have thus become too important to carry out basic­nursing care. Instead, they are busy sitting in offices, endlessly filling in forms and ticking boxes to prove that patient care has never been better.

- "Dr Crippen" (the pseudonym of a long-serving GP), in The Guardian.
