Overview

Inspection carried out on 22 October 2012

During a routine inspection

We observed care being received by people when undertaking dialysis. People were seen to be treated with respect, their clinical needs met and there was a programme available for people to be trained to conduct many of the processes themselves, such as recording weight, connecting to and using the dialysis machine. Patient surveys suggested a high degree of satisfaction with the service. On the day of our inspection, most people undertaking treatment were resting or reading.

The clinical areas were clean, tidy and there were systems in place to lower the risk of spread of infection. Staff were appropriately trained, supervised and supported and we saw evidence of a programme of auditing and monitoring of clinical practice and records.
