Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is using Perfect Ward to provide an immediate view of risks to the quality of care. The real-time visibility of data from the Perfect Ward app, enables staff to take quick action to prevent patient harm. The data, which is captured by nurses during quality inspections, has become an essential part of the quality improvement programme in the hospital, their good governance framework.
The framework is designed to promote clinical best-practice and has made a huge impact; front line staff ‘own’ quality, training needs are easily identified, departments openly share best practice and there is a clear process for managing identified issues. This has all been made possible by Perfect Ward.
‘Proud to care’ is the guiding principle at Barnsley Hospital, always striving to provide outstanding, integrated care. The Trust is equally committed to reducing incidents of avoidable patient harm. To deliver the highest quality and safest levels of care, the Trust recognised it needed to modernise their auditing and clinical performance.
