The priorities seem all wrong, but I suppose it's because the drunken boy is young.
When I started nursing the hospital was run by matron and the doctors and nurses with some secretarial staff. There was a hospital kitchen to supply meals and the cleaners were employed by the hospital. But the nurses did the cleaning immediately around the patients. It all seemed to go smoothly, no waiting lists, infections were rare. Now the hospitals are run by management staff, cleaners come from outside companies, food from kitchens far away and nurses aren't allowed to clean. It doesn't work so well any more.
I really hope someone can find you some help soon, Lyn.
