Nurses will be told to carry out hourly ward rounds under government plans to improve hospital care standards in England.
Patients will also be encouraged to lead inspections in a series of measures to be announced by David Cameron to help tackle a "real problem" with patient care.
The prime minister says he believes nurses have too much paperwork and he wants them to spend more time with patients.
