However, we also found the following issues that the service provider needs to improve:.
You are here
The ligature audit for Eldon was not complete. Staff had not labelled clinical waste bags in accordance with guidance and protocols. Staff had not checked first aid boxes. Staff could not produce maintenance certificates for the stair lift at Granby Street.
The needle exchange service at Loughborough was located in the reception area of the building. Staff had not updated the original risk assessments in 14 out of 20 records we reviewed. This meant that not all risk information was readily available. Managers were aware of this issue and were addressing it with the staff concerned.
The provider was not offering a community detoxification service or comprehensive physical health care. Both of these activities are considered best practice for a recovery focussed substance misuse service.
