Have DM nurses not occasionally been obstructive about this, Ours, although
supoported me going on a pump is an old fashioned soul in many ways and I
would see difficulties arising and feet having to be stamped in order to
self medicate as an inpatient
I think the problem is that so many people just accept that medical staff
take over instead of insisting on doing it themselves. It would be wonderful
if praactises change and perhaps if some of those who aren't responsible
have someone standing ove them and enorcing them to take responsibility
