No safety issues at KGH despite high bed occupancy figures, say bosses

No safety issues at KGH despite high bed occupancy figures, say bosses Bosses at Kettering General Hospital say safety is not an issue despite nearly all its beds being occupied in recent days. According to figures from NHS England for the week January 7 to 13, bed occupancy on general and acute wards at KGH were 97.6 per cent full on average, exceeding the safe limit of 85 per cent recommended by health experts. On average, Kettering General Hospital had 537 available beds each day, of which 524 were in use. Of those, 12 were escalation beds – temporary beds set up in periods of intense pressure.
