More NHS patients 'moved at night'


moving patients because of infection is a very valid and obvious reason but presumably having to move them for these reasons at night is not common practice otherwise one might question why? are they new admissions? if not why was their infection not discovered a few hours earlier during the day time when they could have been moved with far less disruption? or if not could it be that wards are so busy and there is such a shortage of staff that work which should be carried out during the day is spilling over onto the night staff?
