In a statement, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said it has taken action following the Care Quality Commission inspection at Stamford & Rutland Hospital.
“Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission raised moderate concerns that the level of staffing was not always adequate on the John van Geest ward at Stamford and Rutland Hospital from when they visited in August 2012.
“The Trust has recruited a new ward manager and the successful candidate started in her role in November. We have also been successful in filling several vacant nursing posts.
In addition, staffing rosters have been reviewed and modified to ensure adequate staffing levels at weekends and during staff meal breaks.
“We continue to monitor staffing levels daily. We are confident these actions will ensure appropriate nurse staffing levels and care standards for patients.”
