During an inspection looking at part of the service

We inspected the service in order to follow up concerns from previous inspections. At this inspection we identified continued concerns in the way the hospital managed medicines. The service did not operate effective recruitment procedures and staff were not all trained in topics the provider told us they considered to be mandatory. There was a lack of appropriate infection control systems in place and complaints were not handled appropriately in all cases. The provider did not ensure that there were sufficient numbers of skilled and experienced staff available at all times and records were not accurate and fit for purpose in some cases.
