Inspection carried out on 15 March 2012

During an inspection in response to concerns

We carried out this responsive inspection because we had received some information that alleged that people using the service in Ward 23 were at risk because:

- the ward was closed due to an outbreak of diarrhoea

- they were not receiving sufficient fluids and food and fluid charts were not being completed

- dying patients were not being placed on end of life pathways

- patients were missing vital medication

A high proportion of people using the service were unable to express their views to us due to their general medical conditions. In order to determine how care and treatment was provided we spoke with staff, observed their practices and looked at some people's care records.
