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

Comment

Our registered nurse levels increased recently from 1 RCN to 10 patients to 1 RCN to 8 patients BUT they took away HCA's posts, so the benefits to a certain extent were lost as answering buzzers washing/dressing did not realease us to do our other tasks eg PAPERWORK, social etc also trying to do drug rounds whilst toileting patients I am sure you understand what I mean.
