Description:
Patients who use our services have a right to good care and to kind and compassionate treatment. They also have a right to expect that the healthcare professionals who provide that care and the system they work in do their best, in every sense of that term, to deliver high quality care. High quality care means care which is evidence based, appropriate, timely, efficient, effective and patient-centred. It implies that, even when things go wrong, the professionals and the system will do the right thing. It is the action or inaction of senior responsible medical and nursing/midwifery staff in the immediate aftermath of events such as those that are the subject of this Report that make all the difference to effective management. It is vital to patient, public and staff confidence and morale that at the most challenging of times, the healthcare system performs to its highest standard. It is imperative, therefore, that we continue to strengthen policy and practice in respect of patient safety and in particular our capacity to learn lessons derived from monitoring and analysis of adverse events. Background With these issues in mind, the Minister for Health requested the Chief Medical Officer to prepare a Report for him on issues that arose following a Primetime Investigates programme relating to Portlaoise Hospital Maternity Services (PHMS) on 30th January 2014. This Report provides a preliminary assessment of PHMS focusing on perinatal deaths (2006-date) and related matters. Through a series of recommendations it sets out the need for further examination or actions where the findings of this preliminary assessment suggest such a need. It also makes clear who should be responsible for these further examinations or actions.
