As part of our investigation into emergency care, our inspectors found failings in the way that patients are monitored at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Furness General.

We also noted that patients are not always afforded privacy and dignity and are placed on mixed sex accommodation in the clinical decisions unit at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.
