蘇芬德醫院護士因 "有毒 "條件而辭職
She claimed about 15 nurses had recently left to work in different departments or even quit the NHS.
The experienced A&E nurse claimed "every single shift" was short-staffed by up to as many as five to eight nurses.
"My colleagues are suffering and are walking away from the profession as it is toxic here," she said.
"I am sure patients' long-term health is already suffering too. If somebody is critically ill, the longer you leave it to start their treatment, the less chance of recovery.
"It is awful. It is worse than I have ever known it. We have got so many people leaving.
"The NHS Staff Survey for 2021 found that only 15.5% of registered nurses and midwives at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust believed there were enough staff for them to do their job properly, down from 31% the previous year."
A spokesman for Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust said: "Staffing levels in A&E are reviewed regularly throughout the day to ensure that patients are receiving the best possible care.
"There have been many improvements made throughout the department since the CQC visit last year. Whilst there are still some challenges, such as staff recruitment, these are being addressed with clear plans in place."
