    Norfolk Community Health and Care it is using a remote monitoring service from Inhealthcare which allows patients to monitor their vital signs at home and relay readings via a choice of communication channels to clinicians who monitor trends and intervene if readings provide any cause for concern. Analysis of the six months before and after introduction showed a significant reduction in hospital bed days, A&E attendances, GP visits and out-of-hours appointments. Lead heart failure nurse at the trust, Rhona Macpherson, spoke to Digital Health News about the impact of the services

    HSIB was notified about potential patient safety issues by Sarah, who was concerned about the care she had received when her babies were delivered. The investigation used interviews, observations of the maternity unit and reviews of guidelines and organisational documents in order to understand the system-wide factors that contributed to Sarah’s experience and the decisions made by staff. The evidence suggested that the process of decision making in the context of Sarah’s care was relevant to this investigation, so the investigation has summarised the key factors that appear to have influenced

    Coroner's concerns Whilst at King’s College Hospital, Martha was not referred to the paediatric intensivists promptly. If she had been referred promptly and had been appropriately treated, the likelihood is that she would have survived her injuries. The bedside paediatric early warning score (BPEWS) system at King’s is currently still paper based, unlike the adult system. It was put to the coroner very forcefully by medical staff that, until the PEWS system moves to an electronic base as part of electronic recording of the paediatric records as a whole, monitoring and care of child

    Did you know? Key causes of anti-infective medication error claims: Failure to check allergy status. Failure to cross-check the ingredients of a medication against allergy status. Failure to adjust dose of medication to the patient’s weight. Failure to adjust dose of medication according to renal function. What can you do? When prescribing antibiotics, refer to the British National Formulary (BNF) for guidance on adjusting dosages according to patient weight, kidney function and the frequency of monitoring.

    The vision-based patient monitoring and management system described in this article has been deployed, or scheduled for deployment, in 18 Mental Health Trusts in NHS England (in April 2020). The system is not a replacement for nursing skills. Rather, it provides an enhancement to nursing practice. As with the adoption of any new technology into clinical workflows, it is important for practitioners to learn how to manage the cultural shift required to take advantage of a vision-based patient monitoring and management system. The engineering framework described in this article will help the

    Mobile apps to track patients' health are keeping them out of hospital and could cut waiting times, experts have said. It follows a trial of a new app which heart patients are using through their mobile phones. The trial allows clinicians to change treatments quickly and uses video consultations, avoiding unnecessary hospital visits. Rhodri Griffiths is the innovation adoption director at Life Sciences Hub Wales, and is looking for more ways to introduce similar technology. He believes the pandemic accelerated the use and acceptance of digital solutions in healthcare, by patients and

    NHS England patients with Type 1 diabetes will now be eligible for life-changing continuous glucose monitors after the health service secured a new cut-price deal. The wearable arm gadget sends information to a mobile app and allows diabetes patients to keep track of their glucose levels at all times without having to scan or take a finger prick test. Traditionally, continuous glucose monitors are more expensive than their flash monitor counterparts – which record glucose levels by scanning a sensor – but thanks to the NHS agreeing on a new cost-effective deal with manufacturers DEXC

    Key findings Patients, their care partners and care providers express that safety is more than the absence of harm. Safe care requires a proactive approach, with ongoing engagement of patients and their care partners. A number of strategies can be used to enable safer care including giving patients and care partners access to information and engaging them in safety discussions (huddles, bedside reporting, etc). Care partners, volunteers, advocates, and/or a point person (provider) is required to improve communication with patients and increase opportunities for them to

    The objectives of this study protocol is to establish baseline data related to the types and frequency of infusion pump alarms from the B. Braun Outlook 400ES Safety Infusion System with the accompanying DoseTrac Infusion Management Software. This exploratory study will analyse the aggregate alarm data for each hospital by care area, drug infused, time of day, and day of week, including overall infusion pump alarm frequency (number of alarms per active infusion), duration of alarms (average, range, median), and type and frequency of alarms distributed by care area. Infusion pump alar

    The Royal Surrey County Hospital is preparing to open its first virtual ward. From this summer 15 patients will receive treatment at home using apps and wearable technology, as an alternative to a stay in hospital. The ward will be overseen by a consultant, working with therapists, nursing staff and pharmacists. The hospital, in Guildford, plans to extend the ward to 52 patients by April 2024. Health providers across England have been asked to deliver virtual wards at a rate of 40 to 50 beds per 100,000 people by December 2023. It is hoped they will free up beds more q

    How do we know we are safe? This is the Holy Grail that has led to many publications and much research. Authors such as Berwick, Dekker and Syed have written insightful and clear reports that detail that safety is about much more than mere compliance to rules, reporting of incidents and monitoring risk. Local context In my previous blog I shared Solent NHS Trust’s staff survey results, which show high confidence in our staff about safety, having a voice and speaking up. The organisation works hard to define how safe we are and uses a variety of measures for this. Inci

    This webinar from the Institute of Global Health Innovation explores the safety, effectiveness and global relevance of pulse oximetry for at-home monitoring of Covid-19. Pulse oximeters are being explored as a tool for people with COVID-19 to keep an eye on their health at home, away from healthcare settings. These are widely available, low-cost devices that shine light through a person’s finger to assess their blood oxygen saturation. Evidence has shown that a fall in blood oxygen levels is a critical indicator that a COVID-19 patient’s health is deteriorating and they may need closer m

    ADRe is designed for use by nursing staff (NVQ level 3-5 or above), the professionals closest to patients. By using ADRe complex information on drugs is combined into a checklist providing advice on common problems. This helps nurses recognise and act on adverse drug reaction, including pain, dental pain, aggression, peptic ulcers, and sedation. In doing so, it greatly enhances the administration of medicines, and by capturing this individualised picture of the patients’ health and well-being prompts prescribers to refine dosages. ADRe is very simple to use: Nurses use the Profile

    Nearly 900 patients with type 1 diabetes in England are testing a potentially life-changing artificial pancreas. It can eliminate the need for finger prick tests and prevent life-threatening hypoglycaemic attacks, where blood sugar levels fall too low. The technology uses a sensor under the skin. It continually monitors the levels, and a pump automatically adjusts the amount of insulin required. Six-year-old Charlotte, from Lancashire, is one of more than 200 children using the hybrid closed loop system. Her mother, Ange Abbott, told us it has made a massive impact on the w

    Measurement of safety culture – a necessary suite in any Trust's safety measures? Well it seems not! This quick Twitter poll, along with observations from a number of large trusts and discussions at webinars, indicate that culture is not a measure many Trusts have got a handle on. The Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) implementation recommends in the pre-framework preparation that we are meant to be doing culture measurement for this important piece of work to land. With a range of tools around, it’s difficult to know how best to measure this sadly ofte

    Amazon, eBay and Wish have stopped stocking some monitors that let people keep track of their blood oxygen levels after an investigation found they were not fit to be sold. The online marketplaces removed a number of pulse oxygen testing devices known as oximeters from sale after being alerted to flaws identified by the consumer organisation Which? Pulse oximeters have boomed in popularity as a result of Covid, with millions of people keeping one at home so they can quickly assess if their blood oxygen level has fallen worryingly low – a condition known as “silent hypoxia” – which is
