Pushing the call button on unsafe staffing: who will come to our aid?

A report from Unison presents the results of a UK-wide annual survey of nursing professionals and it finds that almost 63% of respondents said that they felt there were inadequate numbers of staff on the wards to ensure safe, dignified and compassionate care.

The survey also found 67% believed that staffing levels had deteriorated since last year's survey and 68% had considered leaving their role in the previous year.
