Demanding safe staffing levels to ensure quality nursing care

Our response to the NICE safe nurse staffing guidelines

The Safe Staffing Alliance (SSA) welcomes the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) draft guideline on 'Safe staffing for nursing in adult inpatient wards in acute hospitals'.

The SSA notes that this is planned as the first guideline for a new NICE work programme on safe staffing levels and is pleased that other settings will be addressed in future guidance.
