"Too few staff for patient safety or dignity."

About: Dorset County Hospital

Anything else?

The medical ward was understaffed. There were too few nurses to treat patients safely or even with dignity. Medication wasn't given on time and some doses even seemed to be missed. Though the majority of staff were helpful and hard working they must be demoralised by their working conditions. A very disappointing experience.
