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.
– Debbie Westhead - North West Regional Lead, Care Quality Commission
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.
The Care Quality Commission has issued two warnings to the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust.
The warnings relate to making sure patients are adequately monitored and not placing patients in mixed sex wards.
