    neither...nor

    Hi everyone. I need some help with a sentence which I am not it is correct or not. Please help me with this:

    Neither have the nurses given the patients medicine on time, nor have they given them shots.

    It seems to be wrong, but I am not sure. Is there a better way to say that?

    Welcome to the forum, Dawnni.

    That's a good attempt. Only the word order needs tweaking:

    'The nurses have neither given the patients (their) medicine on time, nor have they given them (their) shots.'

    The words in brackets (parentheses) are optional.
