Nurse claims low staff levels are costing lives
NURSES at Colchester General Hospital said critically low staffing levels are to blame for high death rates.
A senior nurse, with 30 years experience at the Turner Road hospital, said there can be as few as two nurses to a 32 bed ward.
She also claims staff regularly stay two hours after their shifts to finish paper work and endure 12 hour stints without a break.
