Whipps Cross hospital suffers from bullying, and doesn’t have enough staff to provide the right level of care for patients, a review has found. It has been put into special measures following a report by the watchdog the Care Quality Commission.
The BBC is reporting the concerns include:
â– Insufficient staffing levels to provide safe care, high use of agency staff and low staff morale
â– A persisting culture of bullying and harassment
â– Bed occupancy that is too high
â– A failure to meet national waiting time targets
The hospital trust says it will introduce the necessary steps to improve the service.
