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


11- Sep-2011 - 0.09am As an update to my previous post. I feel if Trusts can say there is one RN to 8 patients it looks good on paper because it is not usually mentioned how many HCW are on duty. As to wearing a red tabard doing drug rounds how do you pass the task on when the other HCW are busy, the buzzers are all lit up and the patients want the toilet and are in distress. Also most elderly medical patients would not understand them anyway.
