Hospital nurses are being forced to "ration care" because they don't have enough time to properly look after patients, a new study suggests.
Fundamental aspects of care are "frequently being left undone", researchers found.
Almost nine in ten nurses questioned said they were so busy on their last shift that they were unable to perform at least one "care activity" such as proper patient surveillance, administering medication properly, comforting patients or changing a patients' position in bed - to prevent bed sores.
The study, published in the online journal BMJ Quality & Safety, examined data from almost 3,000 nurses who work in 46 English hospitals.
