Inverclyde Royal Hospital

19/09/2018

Healthcare Improvement Scotland carried out an unannounced inspection to Inverclyde Royal Hospital, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde on Tuesday 3 to Thursday 5 July 2018. As a result of the concerns we had from this inspection, we carried out an unannounced follow-up inspection from Tuesday 14 to Thursday 16 August 2018. The purpose of the follow-up inspection was to assess progress since the previous inspection.

The full inspection report and an improvement action plan developed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to address the identified issues are available to view at

Elaine Love, Chief Nurse for Professional Governance and Regulation, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “I’m pleased to note the inspectors reported a number of positive findings in the care of older people at the Inverclyde Royal Hospital.

“It is very satisfying that the inspection team found all staff treated patients with compassion, dignity and respect, and were friendly and approachable

“Patients are at the centre of everything our staff do and the feedback inspectors got from patients, families and visitors recognises this.

“In addition, the inspectors identified areas of good practice such as all patients having both cognitive and falls assessments on admission to the hospital as well falls assessments.

“However, we recognise that there are areas we need to build on and an improvement plan has been developed to ensure we deliver the best possible care to our patients. We have already taken action to complete the necessary work for some of the noted areas and work is on schedule to meet the other recommendations.”

Rosslyn Crocket, Board nurse Director, said: “We are pleased to note that the inspection team observed patients being cared for with dignity and respect by staff providing friendly and polite interactions with the patients. This was reinforced by the views of most of the patients and family members interviewed who spoke positively about the quality of care received.   “However, I am extremely disappointed that in a number of areas, particularly record keeping and care planning, we are still falling short of the standards expected.   “To address the improvements highlighted in the report we have developed a comprehensive action plan which is being monitored closely to ensure full implementation.”
