On Tuesday Ian Miller’s blog impactednurse.com together with his Twitter entry were removed due to problems with his employer (The Canberra Hospital).
The blog had attracted more than 2000 subscribers worldwide and was universally praised for its informative advice to the nursing profession and for its skilled and compassionate attitude to the profession.
As such it must have reflected positively on the Emergency Dept at TCH and one is left wondering what sort of pressure was brought to bear to have the page censored so conclusively.
I am sure that many many of his followers are upset at this action and would like to voice their feelings but alas there is now no forum to do so.
Perhaps there are some local nurses who would like to take up the issue through these pages?
