The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has raised warnings over the kind of care being provided by Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust, according to a recent report. In fact, a legal notice has been issued to the trust after an investigation revealed poor quality services being delivered at a hospital.
Dewsbury and District Hospital was found to be lacking in not only providing treatment on time, thus, making patients to wait for long. The inspection, as per the findings, was held following a previous review that had found the hospital was carrying out maternity services in an unacceptable manner.
Though, warnings were given to the hospital at the time also. The review conducted this time to check their performance and expected changes has found that other matters are now worth concern, including bells unanswered for prolonged periods and need to wait to go to toilet.
Also, “The evidence gathered on inspection showed that on one ward of the hospital people’s privacy, dignity and independence were not being respected”, according to the team of investigators.
While the trust says that it had implemented an action plan as well as taken care of those who received poor care. Deputy Director of CQC Malcolm Bower-Brown says that the trust is at risk of facing serious results in case it does not make strict reforms.
