Paperwork hinders nurses28th April 2008
The Royal College of Nursing has said increased levels of paperwork are stopping nurses from treating their patients.
The College carried out a poll of 1,752 nurses and discovered that one fifth of a nurse's hours are devoted to less important administrative tasks. Peter Carter, general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, said: "Nurses are clearly feeling the burden of non-essential paperwork. The danger is that this is undermining their ability to care for patients and support relatives."
