WSLHD nursing and midwifery, in collaboration with clinical governance, allied health and our university partners, conducted the bi-annual pressure injury and falls point prevalence audits at all hospital facilities on November 2 – a massive undertaking!
For the first time, the two audits were carried out on the same day across the district – this was a huge initiative and involved extensive co-operation from staff.
This patient-safety initiative provides a mechanism to ensure our patients receive safe, high-quality and evidence-based care.
Thank you to the staff and students who supported this initiative.
Audit results will guide future strategies for improvement for our staff and patients.
