Critical care clinical quality indicators
Find out how we are doing in critical care services using the links below. More information on how we choose our indicators can be found by clicking on the link on the right hand side.
Catheter-related blood stream infections
This is the clinical quality indicator for the prevalence of catheter-related blood stream infections. Lower is better.
Catheter-related blood stream infection can contribute to higher mortality and morbidity. Low rates reflect good infection control practice.
We aim to eliminate catheter-related blood stream infection.
Expected by the end of the year.
Re-admission to intensive care
The clinical quality indicator for the rate of re-admission to critical care within 48 hours of discharge.
Early re-admission is a national quality indicator of critical care services. Lower rates are associated with better outcomes.
We aim to achieve a re-admission rate lower than the national average.
