Moreover, it was not apparent that medication safety was adequately supported at executive management level at the hospital”. In response, hospital management provided HIQA with a quality improvement plan to address the risks identified.But the report states that “there are no timelines associated with the completion of this quality improvement plan,” and said that this needed to be addressed “as a matter of priority”.  “HIQA also notes that the hospital had endeavoured to strengthen governance arrangements in recent months,” and the report added that a follow-up inspection would be needed.“However, the hospital demonstrated awareness of many of the inherent weaknesses in the existing medication safety systems and had recently acted to address some of the deficiencies identified.“By way of example, inspectors were informed by senior managers that recruitment for a new medication safety co-ordinator post was in progress. Practices to enhance medication safety in the Paediatric Unit were identified during the inspection”. More about health here. 64 patients waiting for beds in UHL NewsHealthPoor medication safety standards at UHL children’s unitBy Bernie English – February 16, 2018 1582 Print TAGSHealth Information and Quality AuthorityRainbow Childrens Wardsafetyuniversity hospital limerick WhatsApp University Hospital Limerick Christmas Gift appeal for children in Direct Provision Facebook Management at most overcrowded and most COVID-hit hospital apologise to patients ‘waiting over 100 hours’ for a bed center_img Previous articleConway signs deal to remain at Munster until 2020Next articleBarrett calls for ambition ahead of season opener in Sligo Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.
