‘Legislation for safe staffing is a must-have for the UK’


And what happens to sick/injured people turned away from admission because their presence would breach the safe staffing limit? Staffing needs to be both adequate and flexible; ie there needs to be sufficient slack in the system to accommodate spikes in demand. How this is to be funded is another problem about which I can only say there ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
