Maternity Patient Safety Statements SLGH

Maternity Patient Safety Statements
Maternity Patient Safety Statements have been published for each of the country’s 19 maternity hospitals and units. Each Hospital Group and Maternity Hospital will publish an updated statement each month.

The objective in publishing these statements is to provide public assurance that maternity services are delivered in an environment that promotes open disclosure.  It is intended that reporting in an honest and open way helps build trust and improves clinical performance and the culture of safety.

The Maternity Patient Safety Statement contains information on 17 metrics covering a range of clinical activities, major obstetric events, modes of delivery and clinical incidents.

While all maternity hospitals collect a large range of information and data on an ongoing basis, these particular metrics have been selected on the basis that they are clinically robust, relevant and underpinned by standardised definitions.

The statements will also inform hospital management in carrying out their role in safety and quality improvement. It is intended that they will act as an early warning mechanism for issues that require local action or any issues that need intervention at Hospital Group or national level.
