The nurse who spoke out about poor care at Stafford Hospital says inspection teams should interview more nurses to obtain a true picture of hospital care.
Sir Robert Francis's report into failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust is published today. Speaking to Nursing Standard, Helene Donnelly said major changes are needed in the way inspections are carried out. 'There should be more unannounced inspections; inspectors should speak to more staff, from cleaners to doctors; and employers should not be allowed to pick staff for inspectors to speak to,' she said.
