NPSA (National Patient Safety Agency) Audit Tool
Ashtons has produced an audit tool to measure compliance with relevant NPSA alerts from the past 2 years.
The NPSA provides healthcare organisations with safety alerts which must be actioned within a specified completion date to comply with Care Quality Commission Regulations.
A recent survey found that half of NHS trusts failed to comply with at least one NPSA alert.
Completing this audit will enable hospitals to verify compliance with the NPSA alerts, or identify what steps are required to be carried out to achieve this.
