When a patient is admitted to hospital, there’s a lot of safety information that they need to take in.
Project Lead and Assistant Director of Nursing and Improving Care, Kate LoPresti, wanted to find a way to share key safety messages, in a way that’s easy to understand and remember.
“In consultation with consumers and staff, we’ve created a short and engaging animation film.
“It helps demonstrate to patients and their loved ones what they can do to make their stay at Austin Health safe and comfortable,” says Kate.
The film covers many safety messages including:
Director, Patient Safety and Clinical Excellence, Luke Bowen, explains that this video and a new patient healthcare, safety and rights brochure will be shown to patients who are admitted to hospital.
“We wanted to give patients the best tools to keep them informed and involved in their own care and safety.
“We know these resources will greatly benefit our patients, their loved ones, and our staff as well,”says Luke.
