Inspectors say there weren't enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people's needs. Below are the main findings of the CQC report into staffing levels at the Blackberry Hill Hospital in Bristol.
- There was an over reliance on temporary bank staff, who may not have had the necessary training to undertake the full range of duties on a medium secure unit.
- Even though many patients at Fromeside were only permitted to leave the ward with staff escorts, staff shortages restricted people's ability to leave the ward.
- Patients and staff said that leave was regularly cancelled or disrupted, leading to further problems affecting staff and patient morale.
