The NHS has been criticised this morning as it emerges that more than 1,000 NHS patients in England in the past four years have suffered from never events.
In fact, between 1st April 2014 and 31st March 2015, 124 operations were performed on the wrong site or the wrong operation was performed altogether.
TheatreMan can help Trusts prevent this kind of mistake from ever happening, as the patient’s planned procedure is always on screen throughout the patient’s episode. From the moment the patient comes into Theatre, staff members have full visibility of the patient’s procedure including the site and laterality of the planned operation. In addition, Trusts can print operating lists at the click of a button on the morning of surgery, which clearly display the patient’s planned procedure and site of operation.
