During an inspection in response to concerns

We inspected the hospital on 11 and 12 March 2013 in response to concerning information received about staffing levels at the service and we found there were not always sufficient staff available at the hospital. During our inspections we found the hospital did not treat people with consideration by keeping them clearly informed about timings of surgical procedures. We also found the hospital did not have appropriate measures in place to deal with foreseeable emergencies and did not always take steps to ensure safety and welfare of people using the service. Medicines were not all stored safely and the hospital did not take necessary steps to ensure only suitable staff were employed by the service
