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

Comment

if you shut the ward where do the patients who need to be admitted go? we used to shut wards in the 90's but we didn't seem to have so many patients in those days, do ITU's close beds nowadays when they don't have enough staff or do the staff just look after more patients? someone has mentioned going on strike, until we do how do we look after patients safely with the staffing and resources we have?
