A statement was read to the court from Mark Saville, a staff nurse at Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust, that talked of staff shortages at the time Mr Moore-Robinson died.
"When I started working at the trust in 2006 we were understaffed."
The statement went on to describe how two nurses in Accident and Emergency would have responsibility for thirteen patients.
The court was also told that "there was no minimum standard" for the taking of vital signs from patients at Mid Staffs at the time.
