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)
Medical Audits provide advice, support, training, consultancy and auditing services to Acute hospitals, Nursing homes, Hospices, Residential care settings and other Healthcare providers so they can continue to provide and maintain a safe environment for their clients and residents during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
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
Medical Audits have the knowledge and skills to provide key services including Infection Prevention and COVID-19 training and HIQA Infection Prevention standards audits to Nursing Home, Care home and healthcare providers
so they can do all in their power to reduce risks of spread of infections.
The role of a standardised format ‘ISBAR’ – ‘Introduction, Situation, Background, Assessment and Recommendation’ communication tool in promoting and supporting clear, accurate clinical handover is well recognised internationally
The ISBAR Audit tool from Medical Audits is bespoke developed to assist with the implementation and ongoing monitoring of the use of ISBAR in clinical handover.
All Medical Audits TS+ Sepsis bundles simplify the complex processes involved in Identifying Sepsis and enable standardised Sepsis management. Each of our bundles are designed to audit practice in relation to the key elements of sepsis management with a range of care bundles and audits to support the implementation of best practice guidelines.
Communication is one of the most important factors impacting on the outcome of an acutely ill patient. Sub –optimal communication between Clinicians compromises patient safety and so needs to be standardised to ensure all the key facts are passed on accurately.
ISBAR (Introduction, Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation) organises a conversation into the essential elements in the transfer of information from one source to another. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in both clinical and non clinical situations of communication transfer.
ISBAR is a Communication Tool adapted from the SBAR tool, which was developed by the American navy to ensure urgent communication in nuclear submarines was provided in a standardised, clear and concise way.
It is also well established in aviation and is designed to provide a framework that would encourage staff to gather the appropriate information and then organise this information in a clear and concise format to communicate onwards.
While ISBAR is used most effectively for urgent escalation of care; ISBAR 3 is another adaption from ISBAR designed for interdepartmental and shift change clinical handover.
