Safe staffing for older people’s wards: An RCN toolkit – 3 October 2012

“Safe staffing for older people’s wards: An RCN toolkit provides a simple, practical way to explore nursing staff levels on older people’s wards, or wards where the large majority of patients are older people, and to determine whether they meet the RCN recommendations for safe care. It is based on the RCN recommendations in Safe staffing for older people’s wards (RCN, 2012). The toolkit can be used to support a review of staffing on hospital wards where older people are cared for. It can also be used to help address any associated leadership and workforce issues and provides guidance on developing an action plan that will identify how, and to whom, actions should be addressed. The Safe staffing for older people’s ward calculator (004 302) is featured as an appendix in this toolkit (this is also available as a standalone resource).”
