Gartnavel General Hospital

November 2016

An unannounced follow-up inspection of the theatre department of Gartnavel General Hospital took place on Thursday 25 August 2016. The purpose of the inspection was to:

  • assess progress with the three requirements made at the previous inspection in November2015,
  • assess the hospital against the Healthcare Improvement Scotland Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) Standards (February 2015).

We were very pleased to note that the Inspectors recognised the improvements we have made since their visit last November.

Following the previous visit we put in place an action plan which has already addressed two of the Inspectors previous requirements.

However, we recognise that there are still areas we need to address and have reassured the Inspectors that the outstanding two requirements made by the HEI team will be implemented.

An unannounced inspection of the wards and theatre department of Gartnavel General Hospital on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 November 2015.

We were very pleased to note the number of positive findings at Gartnavel General Hospital by the HEI inspectors.

In particular, we were pleased with the positive feedback from patients and visitors, that the inspectors noted that communication between different staff groups and teams was generally good and staff were well informed about infection prevention and control issues.
 
There was also good compliance with the dress code and uniform policy and overall the areas inspected were found to be clean.
 
However, we recognise that there are still areas we need to address and an improvement plan has been developed to ensure that the four requirements made by the HEI team are implemented.

     In particular, we were pleased that the inspectors noted that communication between different staff groups and teams was generally good and staff were well informed about infection prevention and control issues.   There was also good compliance with the dress code and uniform policy and overall the areas inspected were found to be clean.   However, we recognise that there are still areas we need to address and an improvement plan has been developed to ensure that the three requirements and one recommendation made by the HEI team are implemented.

November 2011

An announced inspection to Gartnavel General Hospital was carried out on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 November 2011.

NHSGGC received the Inspector’s report in January 2012 and was pleased that overall we are complying with the majority of NHS QIS HAI standards.

In particular, compliance with the NHS Scotland dress code and the management of patients with suspected or known infections are highlighted for good practice.

However, there are still areas we need to improve on including reinforcing the practice of good hand hygiene to all staff at all times.

An action plan is being implemented across the hospital that will address the two requirements and one recommendation in this report.
