In response to the publication of the Care Quality Commission's 'State of Care' report, Labour's Shadow Health Minister Jamie Reed MP said: "This report raises worrying questions about the quality of care some people are receiving, particularly the most vulnerable in our society.
"The Care Quality Commission is right to say patients are paying the price for falling staffing levels in care homes, nursing homes and hospitals.
"Figures this week showed that over seven thousand hospital nursing jobs have been axed since David Cameron entered Downing Street, with almost one thousand in the last month alone.
"The loss of experienced nurses is picking up speed and healthcare assistants are increasingly being used to cover nurses roles. Ministers are taking unacceptable risks with standards of patient care - they cannot continue to ignore the warnings from nurses' leaders."
