Thanks to everyone who completed a Staff Safety Climate & Teamwork Survey, we have had a brilliant response. The Improvement Academy are now analysing the data for us and once we have the reports we will share with the teams across the network.
NEW Critical Care Transfer Guidelines & Forms (Version 2)
The revised Inter Hospital Transfer Form is now available and has been distributed to all critical care units and emergency departments. Version 2 now has colour carbonated copies making it easier to identify where to file the copies. (The pink copy should be returned to the Network office for audit purposes). If you need more copies please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Network has also produced an Intra-Hospital Transfer form that can be used for critical care transfers to CT scan or between departments within the same hospital site. This can be downloaded from the link below. There is no need to return a copy of the Intra Hospital Transfer form to the Network. It can be filed in the patient notes.. The Network Transfer guidelines, downloadable version of the Intra Hospital form, nursing handover documentation and date of the next Transfer Training Day can be found by following the link >>>>>
