Jane Ball: 'The Francis inquiry tells us inadequate staffing costs lives'


Of course there are not enough nurses to look after patients properly, we're tired of saying the same old thing over and over again. There are no set nurse-patient ratios so nothing will change. No-one listens, no-one is ever held accountable. Nurses are constantly told to report unsafe staffing levels, when they do no-one does anything about it anyway. If you do report it you get ignored or fobbed off with some excuse about funding, if you don't report it you are accused of 'failing' in your duty.
