HIQA finds residents of Virginia Community Health Centre were highly satisfied with care

HIQA has found all residents of the Virginia Community Health Centre have high levels of satisfaction with their care.

However, inspectors found the centre was non-compliant in one and substantially compliant in three of the 19 areas inspected.

The health watchdog found there was no formal up to date directory of residents that was easily accessible and available, with the centre using a “disjointed” system of recording.

A “calm and unhurried atmosphere” was recorded by inspectors but they said there was a high usage of bedrails in the centre.

In response, management said it had implemented changes to the recording of its directory of residents with changes also implemented with the use of bedrails.
