Staff levels at Boston Pilgrim Hospital criticised in Care Quality Commission report
Work is needed to improve staffing levels and ensure the care and welfare of patients at Boston Pilgrim Hospital, according to the latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) report.
During an unannounced visit to the site at the end of last year, CQC inspectors found the trust was fully compliant in 8 out of 10 key standards - including the safety of buildings, meeting nutritional needs and management of medicines.
However it raised ‘minor concerns’ over the two remaining standards. Today ULHT was already working to address those concerns and said the report “confirms the significant progress made at Pilgrim Hospital in the last two years”.
A major Trust-wide review of staffing levels is due to be completed in the next few weeks and will provide templates for staffing on every ward and department. Staffing is assessed and adjusted on a daily basis as needs change.
