Research by the Royal College of Nursing has found nine in ten believe a shortage of staff on their last shift could have compromised patient safety. The Nursing union surveyed more than 20 000 frontline staff across the UK.
This is a Reporting Scotland only editorial choice, to headline a UK-wide survey by a trade union with no check on the credibility of its evidence nor of its relevance for NHS Scotland, which, as you may remember has 50% more nurses per patient than NHS England (https://www.gov.scot/publications/foi-19-00620/).
The story does not feature on the BBC Scotland website but does on the BBC UK site. There is no mention of Scotland in the report.
The sample of 20 000? Only a self-selecting (‘squeaky wheel’) 6.2% of the 321 000 nurses in England is mentioned and who know how many were from Scotland? There is no methodology nor is their detail of sampling.
