How many nurses have considered their personal dilemmas, ie responsibility to their own family needs vs employment obligations? Will nurses be quarantined on hospital sites and how well will they be looked after? What liaison is there between NZNO and district health boards on these matters?
It would be great to have open, ongoing discussion regarding the pandemic and its impact on nursing.
