Overview

Inspection carried out on 4, 8, 20 February 2013

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

Patients’ existing care needs were not always assessed and care was not always adequately planned to make sure they received the care they needed. Information about the need of people who could not communicate easily was not available and this meant that ward staff did not always know the best way to take care of patients.

Patients were provided with a choice of meals and staff members assisted them appropriately with eating and drinking if this was required.

There were enough staff members available to care for people properly.

There were systems in place to regularly check and monitor the way the service was run. However, this did not identify that existing care needs information was not available and actions put into place was not fast enough to reduce risk to patients.
