Super Ward

BACKGROUND to the hospital SUPER ward audit tool

Daily Ward Rounds are an essential component of a hospital ward manager’s role whether they are working the the NHS, the HSE or in Private hospitals. They can assess patient case mix, review staffing, inspect the ward environment for Health & Safety issues, check patient care records and so on – basically checking for any possible risks and then mitigating them with immediate actions.

The requirement to Audit has become another key part of the role of ward managers, eating into clinical time and creating an ever increasing burden on clinical staff.

Auditing is a necessity as it provides standardised data on compliance and helps identify risks which can be used to drive improvements.

But we need to make it easier, less time consuming and more real-time and we need to make the auditing process integral to the working day and not always something that’s done later, when time allows.
