* It is not appropriate to ask a family member for consent for photos if the resident cannot.
* The photographer having access to private activities in the bathrooms and toilets of a resident's home raise questions about the staff's ability to advocate for residents and provide a safe, non-invasive and homely home·ly

I accept there are differing opinions on the value of the essay, and some support for publication, but it is very concerning that publication has caused distress for a significant number of people. I am a member of the journal's editorial review committee and I was also disappointed by the response of NZNO's spokesperson, acting chief executive Cee Payne-Harker, to media questions in relation to the role of the committee. On Radio New Zealand Radio New Zealand Limited (Māori: Te Reo Irirangi o Aotearoa) is New Zealand's public service radio broadcaster. It is presently a Crown Entity established by the Radio New Zealand Act 1995, incorporated under the Companies Act 1993, and a (Morning Report, May 18) Payne-Harker said: "I don't know Don't know (DK, DKed)

As is clearly described on the title page of journal, the editorial review committee reviews clinical articles (articles reviewed are clearly labeled within the journal). Committee members did not see the photos nor know of their existence before publication.
This situation provides the opportunity to learn from the issues that have arisen. Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand New Zealand (zē`lənd), island country (2005 est. pop. 4,035,000), 104,454 sq mi (270,534 sq km), in the S Pacific Ocean, over 1,000 mi (1,600 km) SE of Australia. The capital is Wellington; the largest city and leading port is Auckland. is a key publication for registered nurses (RNs). While I appreciate the journal also represents the interests of other health workers, it is really important the professional identity and ethical beliefs of many RNs are not compromised by our own publication. I believe it would be advisable to develop a more formal and collective content review process for the journal. One possibility is an editorial board with RN members who work with the co-editors determining suitable content, and who are then able to defend the publication from a professional and ethical perspective, if any issues arise.
