Weston General Hospital & Perfect Ward

Working together to improve Quality Inspections

Medical staff at Weston General Hospital are switching to Perfect Ward to do their quality audits as the ‘tired and cumbersome’ paper-based system is dropped.

The Trust is working with Perfect Ward to implement our easy-to-use solution to simplify ward assessments across the NHS Trust.

Under the previous paper-based system, medical staff spent a significant amount of time writing reports and analysing results.

Nurses using Perfect Ward, are empowered to conduct ward quality inspections on their smartphones, saving on average 57% of time. Furthermore, the data captured can be shared instantly with colleagues to provide feedback and share best practice.

Weston now joins the vanguard of healthcare organisations choosing Perfect Ward to improve quality audits.

Sally Matravers, Associate Director of Nursing at Weston Area Health NHS Trust, commented:

As a forward-thinking Trust, we are always looking for ways to improve the efficiency of our operations. We’re incredibly excited to be adopting Perfect Ward as we move away from paper in-line with Department of Health objectives.

Our nurses were struggling with high levels of administration which can sometimes make it more difficult to immediately see what is working well and what needs to improve.

The Perfect Ward app, which is incredibly straight forward to use, makes the process easy for our nurses, saves us time and improves the detail and quality of our inspections.

Karen West, Head of Business Development at Perfect Ward, said:

We are delighted to have been chosen by Weston Area Health NHS Trust to help them improve their quality audits. It’s always rewarding to see the positive impact Perfect Ward has in reducing the administrative burden of key front line staff.

At Weston, it’s been fantastic to see how the adoption of Perfect Ward has eased admin pressures and given a fresh view on how ways of working can be improved through digital technology. We look forward to working with Sally and her colleagues to improve inspection quality and efficiency further.
