It is very simple. Does the Minister for Health accept that we have unsafe staffing levels in our hospitals? We should have a ratio of 1:4 but it is more like 1:8 or 1:11. Does the Minister accept that we are short hundreds of nurses when it comes to safe staffing levels in psychiatric and mental health services?
