CQC warns Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital that it must improve staffing levels on cardiac ward to protect patients
The Care Quality Commission has issued a formal warning to University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust in relation to staffing levels on a cardiac ward at Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital.
Inspectors found that the trust had been failing to meet three essential standards of quality and safety covering staffing levels, staff training and support, and the overall care and welfare of patients. Providers have a legal responsibility to make sure they are meeting all the essential standards.
CQC warned the trust that it was facing further enforcement action unless it made improvements to staffing levels on Ward 32. The trust has also been told that it must provide a report within seven days setting out how it will meet the other standards.
