TV&W ACC Long Stay Reporting

As a Network we are keen to gain a better understanding on long stay patients within ICUs within our Network. This process was used in the S.West where there were Complex Rehabilitation Case Managers within NHS England who could help facilitate any delays. It also gave commissioners an understanding on reasons behind and long stay patients they were commissioning.

We are keen to trial this process, and so we are requesting every Unit to complete this for every patient currently in their Unit with a length of stay > 28days (we will send a reminder to Lead Nurses at the start of each month – although do feel free to let us know if there is a better contact we should use).

Here is a link to the reporting form we are asking Units to complete

If you have any queries, then please feel free to email us: england.tv-w-criticalcarenetwork@nhs.net
