    Ian Lindsley, Secretary of the SHBN, began by welcoming those on the call and talking through the speakers and the presentations. The first presentation was given by Martin McMahon of the Health and Safety Executive on the Post Implementation Review (PIR) of the Sharps Regulations 2013 by the HSE. The PIR will assess post implementation effectiveness of these legislative regulations against the objectives as laid out in the original impact assessment and must be concluded, submitted and agreed by Minister by 10 May 2023.

    Findings Most hospitals are delivering good quality care and looking after patients well. The CQC report highlighted many examples of how hospitals are improving and continuing to improve the quality of care they offer, even though there are constraints. CQC encourages trusts to follow this good practice to improve their own services. But it also found that some trusts have blind spots about the quality of care they are delivering in a particular core service, even in some trusts rated good overall. All hospitals told us that patient safety was their top priority, but too of

    Surgical blunders have soared 60% in five years – and extreme mistakes are now a daily occurrence in the NHS. Some 13,921 people were treated for damage caused by botched operations in the year to March 31 – up from 8,695 in England in 2016/17. Cases involved an “unintentional cut, puncture, perforation or haemorrhage”. Separately, a report from NHS England shows 134 patients fell victim to so-called Never Events from April 1 to July 31. Extreme errors included two women left infertile after their ovaries were wrongly removed. Injections and invasive tests were given to the

    This guideline includes recommendations on: information for patients measuring temperature warming patients before their operation, including transfer to the operating theatre keeping patients warm during their operation, including ambient temperature in the operating theatre and temperature of intravenous fluids keeping patients warm after their operation

    The World Health Organization (WHO) introduced the surgical safety checklist in 2009 after a successful trial in eight pilot countries; the term ‘Never Event’ has been in existence since 2001.[1] NHS England defines a Never Event as; “Serious incidents that are entirely preventable because guidance of safety recommendations providing strong systematic barriers are available at a national level and should have been implemented by all healthcare providers.” The current list of Never Events still only classes three reportable intra-operative ‘Never Events’: wrong site surgery, wrong imp

    Over 50 new surgical hubs will open across the country to help bust the Covid-19 backlogs and offer hundreds of thousands more patients quicker access to vital procedures, Steve Barclay, has announced. These hubs will provide at least 100 more operating theatres and over 1,000 beds so people get the surgery they need. And they will deliver almost two million extra routine operations to reduce waiting lists over the next three years, backed by £1.5billion in government funding. They will focus mainly on providing high-volume, low-complexity surgery, as previously recommended by t

    A grieving family has welcomed new guidance to try to prevent a common surgical procedure from going wrong and causing deaths. Oesophageal intubation occurs when a breathing tube is placed into the oesophagus, the tube leading to the stomach, instead of the trachea, the tube leading to the windpipe. It can lead to brain damage or death if not spotted promptly. Glenda Logsdail died at Milton Keynes University Hospital in 2020 after a breathing tube was accidentally inserted into her oesophagus. The 60-year-old radiographer was being prepared for an appendicitis operation when the

    Key recommendations Exhaled carbon dioxide monitoring and pulse oximetry should be available and used for all episodes of airway management. Routine use of a videolaryngoscope is recommended whenever feasible. At each attempt at laryngoscopy, the airway operator is encouraged to verbalise the view obtained. The airway operator and assistant should each verbalise whether ‘sustained exhaled carbon dioxide’ and adequate oxygen saturation are present. Inability to detect sustained exhaled carbon dioxide requires oesophageal intubation to be actively excluded. T

    The backlog of people waiting more than two years for a routine operation in England has shrunk from 22,500 at the start of the year to fewer than 200. NHS England figures show the number of patients waiting that length of time has fallen to just 168, excluding more complex cases. Staff have been praised for carrying out the NHS elective recovery plan, published this year to tackle backlogs built up during the coronavirus pandemic. At the start of the year, more than 22,500 people had been waiting two years or longer for scans, checks and surgery. A further 51,000 who would have

    The HIT lists - which have been designed by Dr Imran Ahmad, consultant anaesthetist and deputy clinical director for Theatres, Anaesthetics, & Peri-operative medicine at Guy's and St Thomas', to eliminate 'turnaround time' - were inspired by Formula 1 motor-racing pitstop techniques, to achieve maximum efficiency and safety, by boosting the surgeon’s operating time (the most expensive and most scarce resource) from the 40% per session of a conventional list to an unexpected 90%, and eliminating all possible patient delays on the day. Dr Ahmad - working with his colleague Dr Kariem El-
