Since December 2016, we have been making dedicated monthly visits to the Brighton and Sussex University Hospital Trust (BSUH) estate.
This includes the Royal Sussex County Hospital and Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.
These monthly visits are called Environmental Care Audits (“audits”), and this report summarises the findings from audits undertaken from April 2017 to March 2018.
- Individually, the highest audit scores were awarded to the Eye Hospital and Royal Alexandra Children’s Accident and Emergency department.
- The heading which consistently received the lowest scores across the seven audits was ‘Is the environment welcoming?’.
- In all cases, the staff that were on duty were observed to be welcoming.
- The heading which consistently received the highest scores was ‘Is the environment organised?’ with four separate audits being given 9 out of 10.
