"Concerned about continuity of care"

As a healthcare worker at Rotherham hospital, I am increasingly concerned about the standards of quality care.
Due to bed closures patients are being constantly moved throughout their stay which I feel results in disjointed medical and nursing care.
The most frustrating thing is they tend to be older patients who really need a stable consistent level of quality care.
In a time savings need to be made I am convinced this continual movement of patients results in increasing lengths of stay and patients not getting the care they need and deserve.
Senior management aren't there to explain to disgruntled patients and visitors why their loved one has been moved for the 5th time - it's left to already stressed and overstretched ward staff!
