The Care Quality Commission reports that hospital care has still not improved after the Mids Staffs scandal.
No improvement has been made by hospitals in patient safety or treating the ill with dignity and respect after the Mid Staffordshire scandal reports the CQC.
47% of problems the CQC identified had a major or moderate impact on patients, which is more than the previous year when the visit was 39%. Poor care was found in 10% of all hospitals.
The report said: “In the aftermath of the failures of care at Mid Staffordshire NHS foundation trust, our inspectors’ biggest concern in 2012-13 was that acute hospitals made no improvement in assessing and monitoring the quality of care they provided. We also found no improvement in safety and safeguarding, or in hospital patients being treated with dignity and respect.”
The problems showed that staff were “talking” over patients as if the patients was not there and patients were either unable to reach care bells or staff were not responding to them in a reasonable time, reports the Guardian.
The report highlights concerns over poor care that ministers have been presenting recently and say that they are determined to address.
Norman Lamb, the health minister, said: “This report shows why we are right to be changing the NHS in patients’ interests. Many more people are living longer with complex care needs. That is why we are transforming the way health and social care is given across the country through a joined-up and integrated approach.”
