    Research shows that patient complaints are significantly associated with physicians' risk management activity and lawsuits. Research also demonstrates that a small subset of physicians and surgeons in various areas of practice are associated with disproportionate shares of patient complaints. Coded and aggregated patient complaint data therefore offer a metric for identifying and promoting behavior change. Analysis of the distribution of patient complaints associated with 41 paediatric cardiac surgeons is presented as a means for helping leaders show one surgeon how her/his risk status compares with peers. The paper describes a specific plan and reliable process by which medical group/centre colleagues and leaders may: address lapses in professionalism and performance; follow-up to promote professionalism, professional accountability, quality, and a safety culture; and reduce risk.

    The Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists is concerned with the professional standards of Pain Medicine specialists, so this document focuses on the Pain Medicine specialist’s contribution to Paediatric Pain Medicine (PPM). This document describes two levels of involvement in the practice of PPM: • The first level outlines the core knowledge, skills and attitudes for all anaesthetists specialising in Pain Medicine who may need to be involved with this area e.g. making timely and appropriate referrals for paediatric pain management and emergency management of a child with pain. Whilst it is recognised that not all Pain Medicine specialists will be directly involved in providing a paediatric pain service, all need to have an understanding of this area. • The second level outlines the advanced knowledge, skills and attitudes required of Pain Medicine specialists who work in teams providing a paediatric pain service. These competencies reflect those of the paediatric pain module which is an option at Advanced level of Pain Medicine training of the Royal College of Anaesthetists’ CCT in Anaesthetics curriculum, which sets out competencies for trainees who elect to take a deeper interest in this area of Pain Medicine practice

    New monitors that can detect the deadly blood condition sepsis are being fitted at a Scottish children's hospital. The equipment will be installed at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow. Charlotte Cooper, who lost her nine-month-old daughter Heidi to sepsis last year, said she had "no doubt" the monitors would help save babies' lives. She told BBC Scotland: "You don't have time to come to terms with the fact that someone you love is dying from sepsis because it happens so quickly." Ms Cooper now wants to see the monitors installed in every paediatric ward in Scotland. "We need to do whatever we can to stop preventable deaths from sepsis in Scotland," she said. The monitors record and track changes in heart rate, temperature and blood pressure, and can pick up early sepsis symptoms. The machines, which have been installed in a critical care area, use the Paediatric Early Warning Scores to monitor the children for any signs of deterioration in their condition. Sepsis Research said early warning of the changes would mean sepsis being diagnosed and treated faster. The monitors were accepted on behalf of the hospital by senior staff nurse Sharon Pate, who said: "In a very busy paediatric word it is vital all our patients are monitored regularly and closely for signs of deterioration. The addition of these new monitors will greatly improve our ability to monitor patients and provide vital care." Read full story Source: BBC News, 4 February 2020

    Key messages Medication errors (MEs) are common and persistent problems that may pose significant risk to critically ill children admitted to paediatric and neonatal intensive care units. Prescribing and medication administration errors were the common types of MEs and dosing errors were the most frequent ME subtype in both paediatric and neonatal intensive care unit settings. Anti-infective medications were the commonly reported drug class associated with MEs/preventable adverse drug events across both intensive care unit types. Further research is needed to examine medication administration errors and preventable adverse drug events in children’s intensive care settings.

    'Gathering feedback from families and carers when a child or young person dies' is a resource designed to help support professionals in their work with bereaved families and carers. It sets out the key principles of ideal bereavement care, provides guidance as to how and when feedback may be collected and by whom. Importantly, it includes the Childhood Bereavement Experience Measure, a suite of questions to inform local questionnaires. Commissioned by NHS England (London Region) and supported by Sands, the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity, this resource has been informed by the experiences and expertise of a wide range of families, healthcare professionals, charities and third sector organisations. It builds on the success of 'Gathering feedback from families following the death of their baby' and the 'Maternity Bereavement Experience Measure'. This resource does not seek to redefine bereavement care, rather consolidate the principles and themes outlined within existing published literature, much of which has been co-developed with bereaved families. It has been tested with bereaved families and bereavement support staff to ensure that it effectively and sensitively captures the experiences of bereaved parents and carers. It is hoped that this resource will inform the development of any new, and the review of existing, feedback mechanisms. It is hoped that local bereavement support teams, clinical teams, patient experience teams, patient advice and liaison services, third sector organisations, and charities find it useful in supporting local improvement in bereavement care.

    Experts have warned hundreds of “hidden” children who rely on machines to help them breathe at home are at significant risk of harm due to staff shortages, poor equipment and a lack of training. The number of children who rely on long-term ventilation is rising but new research has shown the dangers they face with more than 220 safety incidents reported to the NHS between 2013 and 2017. In more than 40% of incidents the child came to harm, with two needing CPR after their hearts stopped. Other children had to have emergency treatment or were rushed back to hospital. Many parents reported concerns with the skills of staff looking after their children or reported paid carers falling asleep while caring for their child. Families reported having to cover multiple night shifts due to staff shortages, while also having to care for their child during the day. Other patient safety incidents including broken or faulty equipment or information on packaging that did not match the item or incorrect equipment being delivered. Consultant Emily Harrop, who led the study, said it was “easy for the plight of individual complex children to slip down the agenda”. She warned: “This is a very hidden group of very vulnerable children who are at risk without investment in staffing, access to training and good communication."
