Overview

Inspection carried out on 12 February 2014

During a routine inspection

During our inspection we spoke with three patients who all spoke very positively about their experience of care and treatment at Spire Methley Park Hospital. All three patients confirmed staff had explained everything well and consent was obtained prior to any surgery or treatment. One patient commented, �I would strongly recommend this hospital�.

We spoke with the hospital director, the matron, the quality manager, a consultant, and six members of staff. The staff members we spoke with were knowledgeable about their own area of work and how they provided care and support to patients in their own departments.

We looked at the medical records for three patients. They contained relevant information such as past medical history, referral information, pre-assessment information and risk assessments. They recorded the type of procedure and surgeon carrying out the procedure. Discharge planning was documented, showing patients had appropriate care arranged when going home.

We reviewed a sample of five staff records and found appropriate checks had been undertaken before staff began work.

We looked at the complaints policy and saw there was a system of responding to and investigating complaints received by the hospital.
