Raigmore Hospital unannounced inspection March 2011
Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, is an acute
general hospital with 457 beds. Services include accident and
emergency, outpatients, maternity unit, coronary care unit and
intensive care unit. There are 11 operating theatres.
We previously inspected Raigmore Hospital in
December 2009. That inspection resulted in three requirements and
We carried out an unannounced inspection to
Raigmore Hospital on Tuesday
1 March 2011.
We assessed the hospital against the NHS
Quality Improvement Scotland (NHS QIS) HAI standards and inspected
the following areas:
- intensive care unit
- ward 4C (surgical)
- ward 5A (medical elderly)
- ward 7C (medical –
- ward 10 (obstetrics).
This inspection report highlights areas of
strengths as well as areas for further improvement, including
recommendations for actions.
The improvement action plan for this inspection has now been
removed from the HEI website, as the inspection took place more
than 16 weeks ago. Please contact NHS Highland for further
information on progress against this action plan.
