Day 55: Hospital Quality Review

I spent another day at our main hospital provider today, where I joined the Chief Nurse and Deputy Chief Nurse for their bi-monthly ward-by-ward quality review.

It was an intensive day; Matrons attended in turn with their senior sisters (or charge nurses) for their wards to discuss successes and challenges in providing safe, effective and valued services to patients.

I was impressed to see the improvements being achieved.  Whilst this bi-monthly process is still relatively new, the quality and consistency of information to support this is also improving.

I’m looking forward to being invited back to join a future review.
