About the Event


A Clinical Evidence based approach to improve quality and safety of care through measurement & governance

Outline:  Barnsley Hospital measure and assess quality of pressure ulcer prevention and falls prevention through Perfect Ward audit tools. Perfect Ward evaluates how clinical areas are implementing the best practice interventions respective to the prevention of inpatient falls & pressure ulcer prevention. Audit findings identify specific care interventions for improvement for individual teams, which coincidentally have been identified in RCAs. This approach allows teams to identify potential lapses in care before harm has occurred. Applying these Perfect Ward Audits across all inpatient areas allows for trust wide benchmarking and driving standards of care higher in line with best practice. Since its inception in January 2020, we have been able to evidence an improvement in standards of care through perfect ward. Our focus is to educate and measure doing the right things for patients rather than focusing on measuring the harms.
