Nurses warn of dangerous dips in safe staffing levels


I volunteer at my local hospital and they are always short staffed. One day, just after giving patients their lunch there was just myself and one other nurse on a ward with 26 beds, it was a nightmare. I was not allowed to help patients due to insurance purposes and the other nurse was rushed off her feet. I start my nursing degree September and just hope that it's like that everywhere. Nurses really are taken for granted!
