The hospital said they picked up the alleged anomalies and informed the police, who then launched a criminal investigation. In a statement, a hospital spokesperson said:

Early in 2013 internal systems within the Princess of Wales Hospital picked up alleged anomalies regarding the record keeping of a small number of nurses.

The Health Board notified the police, and a criminal investigation (still ongoing) was then launched. As a result, three nurses were arrested and bailed and a further 7 were suspended on suspicion of falsifying records.

The investigation is ongoing and it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this stage.
