Standards of cleanliness at Caithness General Hospital in Wick have improved, hygiene inspectors have said.
The Healthcare Environment Inspectorate (HEI) found dirty and contaminated patient equipment in two areas of the 74-bed hospital in September last year.
As a result, NHS Highland were asked to meet three requirements and three recommendations to improve cleanliness.
HEI said when its inspectors visited in May, all patient equipment and wards checked were clean.
NHS Highland has welcomed the latest report.
