Nurses at the Royal Sussex County Hospital say they can no longer properly care for patients following the worst week of their lives
Accident and emergency nurses say they are having the “worst week of their working lives” as they struggle to cope with overcrowding.
Nurses from the A&E department at the Royal Sussex County Hospital have contacted the Royal College of Nursing concerned that they are unable to deliver good patient care due to overcrowding and understaffing.
The hospital had to divert ambulances to other hospitals after once again declaring a “major incident” on Monday, March 11.
Patients and staff have been complaining for overcrowding and long delays for weeks.
The hospital has said they are doing everything they can to “resolve the acute pressure the hospital is under”.
