An inspection of an Argyll hospital has revealed 12 areas for improving its care for older patients.
Lorn and Islands Hospital in Oban was inspected by Healthcare Improvement Scotland in December in an unannounced visit.
The hospital was praised in some areas, including staff tailoring menus for patients and encouraging relatives to become involved in the care of patients.
However, inspectors also drew up a list of areas where they expect the hospital to make improvements.
This includes making improvements to make the hospital more suitable for patients with dementia and other cognitive impairments.
NHS Highland have also been ordered to make sure that systems are in place to record personal information such as power of attorney.
They have also been asked to ensure that all medicines used are properly recorded in line with national standards.
Donald Watt, clinical services manager for Lorn and Islands Hospital said: “We are delighted that the inspectors have acknowledged all of the positive work that is happening in the hospital.
“We also recognise the areas for improvement that they have identified and work has already commenced to address these.
“The senior charge nurses and all of the staff in the hospital are committed to making sure that all patients in Lorn and Islands Hospital receive the highest possible standards of care.”
During the visit, inspectors spoke with staff and patient and carers.
They observed what happened in the wards, looking at how staff interacted with patients and what happened at mealtimes on three wards.
Pat Tyrrell, lead nurse for Argyll and Bute Community Health Partnership, said: “Staff have worked hard to implement all of the standards across all of our hospitals and the inspectors have recognised the positive impact that much of this work is having on improving care for patients.
“However, we also take very seriously the areas which require further improvement and we have already instigated an action plan to address these.
“We will never compromise our focus on the quality and safety of the care that we provide in Lorn and Islands Hospital and we will continue to make sure that this is a hospital that staff and patients, as well as the local community, can continue to feel very proud of.”
