A TOP nurse has commended her staff after six unannounced inspections by a health watchdog.
Cathy Stone, Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust’s director of nursing, praised staff after the inspections by the Care Quality Commission.
The inspections included visits to St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester in October last year and in March this year.
On both occasions inspectors from the Care Quality Commission confirmed all standards of care being scrutinised were met.
Mrs Stone said: ‘The inspectors have observed high quality, safe and compassionate care across our hospital, something I also see each day on our wards.
‘We know our staff do a wonderful job and these inspections are further evidence of the high standards of care they provide.’
