dc.descriptionThis study consists of an audit of the Accident and Emergency department of a large Dublin paediatric hospital, Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin. Audit is the process of reviewing the delivery of health care to identify deficiencies so that they may be remedied. It is a valuable tool which can be used to measure and modify the quality of care. This audit focuses on three aspects of quality, namely acceptability, accessibility and equity. It also encompasses a fourth dimension of appropriateness of use of this service; this is vital to the total quality management process, as inappropriate attenders may decrease the quality of care for appropriate attenders. A total of 645 patients attending the Accident and Emergency department (Accident and Emergency department) were sampled to represent the patterns of attendance by season (summer and winter), day of week and time of day.en_GB
