During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We carried out this inspection to check whether the provider had made improvements to the service since we last inspected on the 9 December 2013. At this inspection we found the provider was not ensuring that patients who used the service were protected against the risk of inappropriate care and treatment by ensuring theatre records were completed fully.

We saw that the provider had made significant changes to the way theatre records were stored, recorded and audited. They had ensured patient�s personal records including medical records were accurate and fit for purpose. The registered manager had reviewed patient�s pathways. We saw the provider now used an electronic system (meditech) for all pre assessment and post assessment checks. Staff meetings minutes we reviewed showed that records and documentation was a regular agenda item. This enabled staff to fully understood the importance effective record keeping.
