Fitness to practise proceedings launched following CQC inspections


So the NMC will as a result develop more standards, how many is it now 64/65? Mike's comments are to the point. CQC undertake their inspection with an inspection template. If wards had to have mimimum staffing levels at AM/PM and late shifts that was incorporated into the ward mission statement/Ethos as is the case with the National minimum standards for care homes. then managers would not chance their registration with CQC with respect to safety and quality outcomes. Seems that NMC should focus their attention on employing NHS Trusts etc to ensure staffing levels. some trusts had advertised for lunchtime/teatime voluntary 'feeders' to get around this particular problem to great sucess. Seems that the NMC answer is to create additional standards. I certainly glad not to be a practicing nurse with george Orwell's big brother in the shape of NMC, they are as much support as jelly.
