Overview

Inspection carried out on 25 February 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We undertook this inspection to check whether improvements had been made since our last inspection in April 2013. At the inspection in April 2013 we found many care plans had not been reviewed within expected timescale and there was a risk that care plans did not address patients� current needs. In addition, information recorded in patients� electronic records sometimes conflicted with information given to staff about their care needs and status under the Mental Health Act 1983.

At this inspection we found that improvements had been made. We reviewed the health care records of eight young people admitted to the adolescent unit and found that most care plans and risk assessments were up to date and had been reviewed in accordance with specified dates. This ensured care plans reflected the current needs of patients. Patient records were accurate and fit for purpose.
