NURSE AID'S APPEAL

"GENUINE EFFORT MADE" HOSPITAL DEPRESSED HER "The place depressed me so much that I came home each night and cried," stated Miss L. F. Reynolds, when she appealed before the District Manpower Committee to-day against the decision of the manpower officer not' to grant her permission to terminate her employment as a nurse aid at the Green Lane Hospital. The appeal was made on health grounds. Applicant stated that she went to the hospital of her own accord, but found she did not like the general atmosphere of the place and her health was affected. "I feePthat if you send her back there she will do something drastic as it is affecting her mentally as well as physically," a witness who supported applicant's statement that the work had caused her ill health. "I think you have to have a hard nature to stand up to it," witness added. Disagreement with this view was expressed by the acting lady superintendent, Green / Lane Hospital, Miss L. Ennis, who said she thought a nurse should be sympathetic, and that a hard person did not make a good nurse. At the same time a nurse had to have an inspiration for her work and some "were not cut out for it." Miss Reynolds had made a genuine effort to cope with the work, but she was not suited for nursing. Decision was reserved. In the case of an appeal by a cook, Miss C. Fleming, against direction to the Green Lane Hospital, the district manpower officer's representative, Mr.. J. Muncaster, stated a letter had been received from the applicant stating that she had found the job "not so bad," and' she was prepared to abide by the direction.
