Every ward at the new SGUH will be equipped with a purpose designed performance board to display up to date key clinical and patient safety indicators for staff and patients. This design has been adapted from existing best practice across NHSGGC and will serve to provide a snapshot of ward based performance data relating to indicators such as hand hygiene, patient falls, nutrition and infection control. Ward teams will be briefed on their performance together with any patient safety issues at the start and end of each shift.
Each bed head within the new SGUH will also include a purpose designed white board detailing individual patient details together with their nursing care needs and the named nurse responsible for the coordination of care. This design includes the principles of 'what matters to me' to support the delivery of person centred care.
