Basildon Hospital has been told it still needs to make improvements, following another inspection by the Care Quality Commission.
In November last year, warnings were issued to the Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Trust about issues in the following areas:
Storage of medicines. Some medicines were out of date.
Children waiting too long to be seen by doctors.
Learning from past mistakes.
A further inspection in January this year found that, while improvements had been made in the storage of medicines, action was still needed in the other two areas.
The hospital has also been told to improve its cleanliness and infection control.
