Work starts on so­lu­tion

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

NHS Forth Val­ley say they have taken the in­spec­tors’re­quire­ments on board and im­prove­ment work is al­ready be­ing put in place.

But they stressed there was also much in the re­port to commend the hospi­tal.

An NHS FV spokesper­son said: “This re­port re­flects the high stan­dard of care pro­vided for older peo­ple in FVRH.

“In­spec­tors noted the ma­jor­ity of pa­tients praised the way they were looked af­ter and, de­spite be­ing busy, wards ap­peared calm and or­gan­ised.

“There was good flex­i­bil­ity in pro­vid­ing alternative or ad­di­tional meals and peo­ple need­ing help re­ceived it in a timely man­ner.

“The re­port also com­mended the age­ing and health-in­te­grated care ward for their work with pa­tients with a cog­ni­tive im­pair­ment.

“Whilst we wel­come this re­port, we recog­nise there is no room for com­pla­cency.

“Work will con­tinue to en­sure we main­tain con­sis­tently high stan­dards, par­tic­u­larly in re­la­tion to doc­u­men­ta­tion.

“We have al­ready in­tro­duced changes to the way we com­plete ini­tial as­sess­ments and per­sonal care plans and note the in­spec­tors were keen to em­pha­sise poor doc­u­men­ta­tion does not mean care is poor.”
