Care workers 'exhausted' by staff shortage

A care worker in Northern Ireland has said she feels like a "workhorse" because a shortage of staff means she often has to work 80 hours a week.
 
Her comments follow a BBC investigation into the current state of social care.
 
It reveals that on one day this month, 88 people had to stay in hospital unnecessarily, due to a wait for a suitable home care package.
 
The Department of Health said care demand has risen "considerably" and it is reviewing its domiciliary workforce.
