"CQC ratings and cleanliness"

On the main website for your hospital, it states that all standards are met by the CQC and this is characterised by a green tick. This is patently untrue as your recent review by the CQC in July 2014 had an overall rating of "requires improvement". This information on your website is misleading and inaccurate. On visiting my elderly parent in the urology ward (C22) during October/November 2014 I witnessed a bag on the floor full of blood, spilt and just mopped up with towels. This stayed like this until the end of the visit. On another day, again whilst visiting recently, there were dried faeces on the floor of the ward. It also appears that you cannot input any ratings on this feedback site in relation to the treatment and care as it just does not allow this.
