§ 4. Mr. Walker-Smith
asked the Minister of Health what instructions govern the employment of elderly male nurses on the staff of mental hospitals on duties which may be expected to bring them into contact with violent behaviour.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
There are no centrally prescribed instructions. These nurses generally act as the hospital authority or the senior medical and nursing staff may direct, and in accordance with the principles inculcated in the course of their training.
