Your safety and the quality of the care you receive is very important to us. We participate in national and international quality initiatives, which help us to provide you with high quality, safe and reliable care.

Hospital hygiene: Ensuring that our wards and all parts of the hospital are kept clean is vital to preventing the spread of infections and is something we take very seriously.

Risk Management

Risk management is about improving patient safety by identifying and reducing risks which may cause harm or injury to patients.

We all know that things can go wrong and accidents happen in hospitals but it is important that we try to reduce these as much as possible.

Clinical Audit

What is clinical audit?

Clinical audit is ‘a quality improvement process that seeks to improve patient care and outcomes through systematic review of care against explicit criteria and the implementation of change’. Principles for Best Practice in Clinical Audit (2002, NICE).

Put simply – clinical audit is a way of finding out if we are doing what we should be doing and making improvements where necessary.

Child Protection

Under the Children First Act, the Rotunda Hospital has a statutory obligation to prepare and publish a Children First Safeguarding Statement:

This is a written statement that specifies the service being provided and the principles and procedures to be observed in order to ensure, as far as practicable, that a child availing of the service is safe from harm.

The Child Safeguarding Statement provides an overview of the measures that the Hospital has in place to ensure that children are protected from harm.
