CQC impose conditions on the John Radcliffe Hospital
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has told Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust that it must make improvements to the operating theatres at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford
Following an inspection on 7 December 2018 CQC placed three conditions on the registration of the trust to minimise the risk of patients being exposed to harm.
CQC has told the trust:
- To ensure patients’ privacy is maintained at all times including when they are asleep, unconscious or lack capacity when in the main operating department. This includes ensuring all windows in doors to theatres are obscured.
- To produce an action plan by 20 December 2018, to assess and mitigate the risk of infection and the risk to the health and safety of service users receiving care and treatment and the risk to staff in the main operating department.
- Each week from the 21 December the trust must submit a report to the Care Quality Commission, which describes the action taken and sets out the evidence which demonstrate those actions are being taken.
