Description of the Patient Safety Practice
 
Patient Safety Walkarounds are Directorate based. The hospital is subdivided into target areas/units for these Walkarounds and allocated to 1 of the 4 clinical directorates. Examples include inpatient wards, outpatients, day wards, theatre etc. They are carried out in 2 of these areas every month (in one Directorate)

QSRM Programme Co-ordinator advises staff in the selected areas of the intended Walkaround and a mutually convenient time is scheduled. A pre-meeting with staff takes place to discuss the background, purpose and copy of the questionnaire (14 questions) used during the Walkarounds is given.

Walkarounds are carried out by a team which would include the CEO, the Director of Quality Safety and Risk Management, Director of Nursing and QSRM Programme Co-ordinator (who records responses/ data).

Following the Walkaround a meeting with the respective Clinical Director, Business Manager and Directorate Nurse Manager takes place to feedback responses. A list of responses is also issued to the CD Team by email following the Walkaround

The Clinical Directors are required to give a monthly update at the Executive Management Team as to the progress on following through with the issues raised from the Walkarounds.

(Tallaght Hospital Patient Safety Walkarounds is based on the ‘Patient Safety Leadership WalkRounds’ model developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Boston MA, USA)
