Persistent challenges to providing quality care
An RCN report on the views and experiences of frontline nursing staff in care homes in England
Dr Peter Carter (RCN general secretary) said the findings are 'hugely concerning' and show the challenges faced by care home staff.
He added: 'Many of these challenges are not new, but following years of underinvestment these issues have now significantly worsened. When nearly two in five nurses say there are not enough nurses to meet the needs of residents, then you know that this is a worrying state of affairs.
'Even nurses who were positive about the quality of care felt it was delivered despite significant challenges.'
