CQC criticises trust for ward ratio of one nurse to 22 patients

Comment

I don't know why this isn't dealt with more seriously - trusts get fined for not achieving certain goals ..... money talks . In my hospital ward nurses have ratios of 1 nurse to 13 patients for years and nothing has changed ! Shame on the government and shame on CQC for not doing more about it and SHAME on trust management for not providing adequate, safe care for patients and not burning out their valuable ward nurses. I would not work on a ward and I am amazed that anyone does .
