"This research is further evidence of the clear relationship between nurse staffing levels and patient-care outcomes. Nurses frequently tell us about very distressing situations they have to cope with when there are not enough staff. As well as having a detrimental impact on patient care and outcomes, the inadequate staffing of clinical areas also has a negative impact on nurses’ health, causing a rise in work-related stress and increasing sickness levels."
"High quality patient care depends on the skills and experiences of nurses, a safe environment and safe nursing numbers."
"The Assembly’s Health and Social Services Committee voted recently to support Phase 2 of the Nurse Staffing Levels Bill which will now move to Phase 3. The ‘Safe’ Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill’, introduced by Kirsty Williams AM, has now progressed to Stage 3 in the legislative process. We are encouraging all of our Assembly Members to vote to support this bill. Eighty-seven percent of the Welsh public believe that this bill is important for Wales."
"Without a law like this our lives and the lives of those we care about are being put at risk. The bill will improve patient care and ensure better outcomes - the safety of patients in Wales should not be ignored."
