CQC rates Yorkshire and Humber hospital service as Good
The CQC has rated the quality of care being provided on their ward for people with learning disabilities or autism at Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust as Good.
This unit was only caring for one patient during the inspection which took place in September 2015.
The delay in publication of this report is because a serious safeguarding allegation was made and was subject to a police investigation. Now that the investigation has concluded and the police identified that no action was required, the CQC are publishing their findings.
The full report including ratings for all of the provider’s other core services is available on our website.
The findings included:
- Staff were skilled and trained in safeguarding.
- Care records were up to date, there were comprehensive care plans in place.
- The ward had significant staffing issues following the unavailability of some staff following the safeguarding incident in February 2015. This however had been temporarily resolved and some senior staff had been brought in to ensure support, consistency and oversight of the service.
However, CQC also found:
- Incidents of restraint in this area were the highest in the trust between 01 November 2014 and 30 April 2015 272 incidents were recorded. The provider and ward staff were aware of this and were working hard to reduce this amount.
