How this check was done

Our judgement

Patients are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by competent staff. Overall, the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, was meeting this essential standard.

User experience

We did not speak to patients about this outcome on this occasion.

Other evidence

Staff we spoke with told us that they have attended mandatory training including, manual handling, fire safety, resuscitation and infection control. Staff training needs are identified during annual appraisals on their performance.

Clinical supervision of nursing staff takes place informally or in a group setting such as during team meetings. Nursing staff who were new to the clinical areas told us that they received support from senior members of staff in order to build up their competence.
