Nursing and midwifery staffing levels

OUH has a robust system in place to assess staffing levels on all its wards twice daily. This enables the Trust to adjust staffing levels as needed to reflect patient numbers, and also how sick they are, and therefore whether they require additional nursing care.

The nurse staffing numbers are broken down into registered nurses and clinical support workers who provide care under the supervision of registered nurses. The data supplied reflects a core planned level of staffing on each ward but does not reflect the daily changes in the number of patients on any ward which often changes on a day to day basis.

Safe Staffing last 12 months
