An inspection by the Care Quality Commission has uncovered that the Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury, which was issued warning notices earlier, has now been showing improved results, a recent report reveals.
The surveyors from the CQC have found in their April inspection that Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS was clear and was offering standardized staffing and patient care.
The survey had been conducted with a view to have a look at the care and services being provided to patients as well as staff work within the hospice. Tunbridge had nicely answered the two notices issued to it in February.
As per the findings, the CQC had visited almost 62% of the 10,000 England care homes in the last year. And it had made an announcement that strict raids would be conducted once each year so as to ensure quality standards.
It has been found that both the hospitals were also complying with A&E waiting time targets and had seen 95.6% of patients within defined time slot of four hours.
While the hospitals were meeting patients’ needs, giving them experienced care, full support and protection of their rights, the staff treating them was qualified and skilled, the report has concluded.
