Inspection carried out on 12 January 2014

During a routine inspection

This inspection was undertaken as part of our planned programme of inspections. We inspected Stratton Hospital on Sunday 12 January 2014. During this inspection we spoke with four patients on the ward and six members of staff. No patients attended the nurse led Minor Injury Unit (MIU) during our visit there.

Patients told us that they were very happy with the care they had received and told us that their consent to care and treatment had been requested and their choices respected. They told us they felt the standard of care they had received was very good and their comments included �Staff have a nice smile on their faces all of the time, staff are kind and caring and we are well looked after".

People were protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had appropriate arrangements in place to manage medicines.

People using the service and staff told us they considered there to be sufficient levels of staff with the right skills. Training was ongoing to ensure staff remained aware of current good practice and staff told us they felt supported by the senior staff at Stratton Hospital.

The provider had an effective system in place to identify, assess and manage risks to the health, safety and welfare of people who use the service.
