HEALTHCARE AUDIT SYSTEMS
When you choose Medical Audits technology system for hand hygiene you get to save staff costs and bed days and much more...
Robust leadership in infection prevention and control is essential for effective decision-making, efficient use of resources and ensuring the provision of high quality, safe, effecitve, person-centred care (HIS, 2015)
Every year over 300,000 patients in England acquire a healthcare associated infection whilstin hospital. These infections cost the NHS more than £1 billion a year
The WHO Estimate that 25% of HCAIs are caused as a direct result of poor hand hygiene
You utilise you specialist Nurses to audit and educate while our technology system manages the data.
A specialist Nurse grade costs about €30.00/£25 per hour - An average hospital hand hygiene audit (150 opportunities) takes 10 hours to complete.
Thats just the audit.. The paper work (typing everything into excel files, reviewing data, generating reports by ward or by staff group) takes almost the same length of time again. In fact the minimum time to complete the required data set and create the reports and charts and graphs needed for feedback by ward, department and staff group is 12 hours.
Then you have the quarterly reports to prepare... correlating everything to show trends (hopefully upwards - Another 8 hours (4 times per year)
The savings in your most scarce resource - Qualified experienced staff would be 12 hours per month - 12 hours that could be spent in the Clinical area, educating, auditing, supporting staff and improving practice across all areas of Infection Prevention and Control - Not just Hand Hygiene.
The Medical Audits technology system will do the rest.. saving you real resources for where they can make a difference.. in the CLINICAL AREA not the office.
Not spending that kind of time on reports and feedback?
Then you are not getting the kind of reports and feedback you need to initiate real, long lasting change.
