Ward ratio of 60:40 is low as you can go, CNO tells Mid Staffs inquiry


This woman is a fool and an embarassment to our profession, the sooner she is out the better! Stop clinging onto the post by your fingertips and just go! We NEED a LEGALISED Nurse patient ratio of at least 1 Staff Nurse to say 6 - 8 patients, we NEED a skill mix that ensures enough QUALIFIED staff are there to enable us to do our jobs safely, and there is enough unqualified staff there to back us up! 60:40 is not enough!
