This policy confirms the process for reviewing deaths within Lincolnshire Community Health Services (LCHS) to ensure a consistent approach is followed in order to identify if the patient’s needs were met during the end of life phase and that relatives and carers were supported appropriately. The aim of the mortality review process is to identify any areas of practice that require improvement and to identify areas of good practice. This process ensures that mortality within LCHS is managed and reviewed in a systematic way.
This policy includes;
- a mortality review reporting template
- a mortality review meeting template
- a monitoring template.
