From BBC, which focuses an unflinching eye on the reality of socialized medicine, and the astonishing weirdness within and without (though I should say that the eye sees without seeing…)
Nurses are to be rated according to the levels of care and empathy they give to patients under government plans.
Health Secretary Alan Johnson told the Guardian newspaper that he wants the performance of every nursing team in England to be scored.
He said he believes compassionate care was as crucial to the recovery of patients as the skills of surgeons.
Nurse leaders welcomed the move and said they would work with ministers on developing the system.
But he ruled out rating individual nurses and also said it would not affect pay.
Group compassion? What the heck are they even pretending to measure?
