We welcome this report by Healthcare Improvement Scotland following their unannounced visit to the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital.
We took immediate action to resolve the issues identified and have addressed all the requirements by the inspectors during their visits in October.
We have put in place revised cleaning schedules in the emergency birthing room, replaced mattresses and implemented further staff training in infection control and safe storage of breast milk.
We are delighted that the inspectors found good compliance in a number of areas including high standards of cleanliness in wards and departments and uniform policy.
The inspectors also highlighted that 98% of the parents and patients said they saw ward staff always washing their hands during their stay in hospital.
