Staffing shortages highlighted at hospital

A review into women's and children's services at Noble's Hospital has highlighted a number of concerns - including staff shortages and training.

The West Midlands Quality Review Service team visited the Braddan facility in October last year to look at areas including maternity, gynaeology, neonatal and paediatrics.

It described staff as being committed and enthusiastic - but said an ongoing shortage of consultants and specialist nurses was impacting services.

The report, out on Monday, also said that there was a shortage of clinical guidelines and a surprising amount had been developed shortly before the planned visit.

The organisation, which has been carrying out a series of reviews at the hospital, said it was concerned over a lack of education for children whose health problems meant longer stays at Noble's.

Reviewers found cases where children hadn't had any education for more than 100 days - saying youngsters with health problems were being seriously disadvantaged.

It also criticised poor infection control in the maternity unit - with broken wooden furniture in delivery rooms and staff making drinks in a kitchen used for sterilising bottles to feed babies.

But it did praise the commitment, hard work and dedication of staff, adding they were keen to provide a good servce for local people.
