How does Cabrini’s surgical complications rate compare?

 

Overall surgical complications requiring unplanned return to theatre rate

What does this mean?

Unplanned return to theatre is one of the Hospital-Acquired Complications (HAC) and includes complications like:

  • Bleeding after surgery
  • Surgical wound coming apart
  • An internal leak after abdominal surgery
  • A graft failing

What are we doing to further reduce surgical complications?

Cabrini carefully monitors all complications to try and learn from our experience.  Where complications appear to occur regularly, we undertake an in-depth review to change practice and educate our staff about how to prevent future complications.

What can you do?

It is important to tell the nurse if you believe you have experienced a complication.  This will help Cabrini review your care and make changes that will reduce the chance of future complications.
