The CQC's report criticised risk management practices at the hospital:
"In the paediatric department we found ineffective risk management practices such as incomplete risk registers, action plans not signed off or made clear as to who was accountable for ensuring actions were taken....Poor practices and behaviours were left unchallenged. Lessons were not learned and staff morale was undermined."
Basildon Hospital has been served a warning notice, to be met by the 13th of August 2013.
