Hospital rapped on heart ward staff

A children's hospital has been given a warning by the health watchdog for failing to protect patients by not having adequate staff on a cardiac ward.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said it had given Bristol Royal Children's Hospital a formal warning for not having appropriate staff numbers on a ward caring for babies and children with heart problems.

The CQC said that, during an unannounced inspection, it found there were not enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet patients' needs.
