Relatively Speaking

“They (patients) don't want you to be lachrymose and whining with them, they like you to be fresh and active and interested... A sick person does so enjoy hearing good news” Florence Nightingale 1860

Over the years attitudes have changed and it is now recognised that relatives are a vital lifeline to normality for the patient, a source of information for staff and part of the holistic treatment of that patient.
