Welsh Assembly passes 'historic' nurse staffing levels bill


This bill is about ensuring safe staffing levels which will translate into providing a level of care that is appropriate for our patients in Wales. Any guidance on safe staffing levels will be very much welcomed by ward staff, sisters, Mgrs & most of all patients. There will inevitably be much discussion about training, development, skills, opportunities when resourcing the hospitals & ensuring that Wales employ the very best people for these jobs. The multiple co-morbidities that are seen by front line staff and clinical teams, the change in the acuity of patients has increased over the past few decades and as people live longer this will continue to provide additional challenges in the level of 1:2:1 care that will be delivered at ward level. Fantastic news for Wales and my local hospitals in Gwent. Terry Watkins (ABCi Dept)
