Safety fears are growing as hospitals redeploy nurses to care for patients in corridors. Overcrowding forces ward staff to spend part of shift looking after patients without a bed says the Guardian,

Many hospitals have become so overcrowded that they are being forced to tell nurses to spend part of their shift working as “corridor nurses” to look after patients who are waiting for a bed. Nurses, doctors and hospital bosses have all voiced unease about the practice, which has risen sharply in recent weeks as the NHS has struggled to cope with the extra pressures of winter.
