Ward Staffing Data

Paula Gardner

Patient safety is a key priority for Burton Hospitals. The National Quality Board (NQB), on behalf of the Care Quality Commission, Chief Inspector of Hospitals and Chief Nursing Officer of England issued guidance in November 2013 that made ten key recommendations to optimise nursing, midwifery and care staffing capacity and capability. At Burton Hospitals we have welcomed this call to be open and transparent about our staffing levels and we are happy to publish information on a ward by ward basis about our staff rotas. We consider this a key element of delivering excellent healthcare services, and aim to achieve this by ensuring that we have the right people with the right skills in the right place at the right time.

Our aim is to make it easy for you to see at a glance how many staff we PLAN to have on duty on each ward every day – and how many staff are ACTUALLY working on those shifts. This information is now displayed on all of our in-patient wards. If this information isn’t readily or easily available, please speak to the Senior Sister of the ward who will be able to address this.

Information on each of our inpatient adult wards can be accessed here

More specific information can be found on our websitehttp://www.burtonhospitals.nhs.uk/departments-and-services/ward-staffing.htm

We are also completing a nationally recognised evidence based audit tool on a daily basis, referred to as the Safer Nursing Care Tool (SNCT), which provides information to the Senior Nursing team on whether our staffing levels are appropriate for the numbers of patients on our wards. This information is used to predict whether further investment into nursing numbers is required. In addition, we will be publishing our staff sickness rates per ward and information for maternity and paediatric services from July within this reporting template.

On behalf of the Trust Board, I hope you find this information useful. As leaders of the Trust, we consider all staff groups to be both valuable and essential to the delivery of patient care, and our work on nurse staffing levels is part of a wider programme that is considering all staff and professional groups. The results of our SNCT audits and information on nurse staffing levels is discussed in our open Trust Board meetings, details of which can be accessed here
