The Royal College of Nursing (RCNhas said it is "extremely concerned" over new analysis which shows that hundreds of NHS hospitals do not have enough nurses to care for patients properly.
Peter Carter, chief executive of the RCN, told The Times:
What Jane Ball’s research has found is unacceptable and we should be extremely concerned about it.
In most place where there’s poor care it’s not because nurses are willfully negligent or unfeeling, it’s because there aren’t the numbers.
3,000 nurses from 46 hospitals were asked about conditions on their last shift as part of the three-year survey project by the National Nursing Research Unit at King’s College London.
