  • Sticker Checklist StudyProfessor Hills Team

  • IntroductionMedical notes and records were originally used as a reminder for doctors about their patients state of health.1 Nowadays, it is vital that any documentation recorded should be made in accordance with the Health Service Executive [HSE] Records Management standards. This is an official document providing clear guidelines to help enfore enhanced safety measures.2

  • The Study?A cohort study over eight days. There were two groups; a sticker study group and a control group, each consisting of 5 consultant teams. Based on these teams and their in-patients we were able to analyse data of 198 surgical ward round notes. This totaled to 34 study patients and 53 control patients.

  • Stickers Used?

  • How were the wardround notes analysed?We checked for thirteen variables in the ward round notes.We divided these variables into four groups; Standard Criterion Health Professional DataSignificant Clinical Data Team DataThese variables abide by the HSE guidelines and must be present in any form of medical documentation.Now for some statistics

  • Percentage Adherence

  • Average Adherence PercentageWe calculated the average adherence percentage by addingUp the 13 variable and dividing it by 1300 and finally multiplying it by 100 :-Control group :- 69+100+95+23+1+2+93+95+98+34+40+25+43 = 718 (718/1300) * 100 = 55.2%Sticker group :- 100+100+94+85+100+100+100+100+100+48 +81+77+100= 1186 (1186/1300) * 100 = 91.2%

  • Increase in Adherence to Standards

  • Conclusion Based on these results, we would like to conclude that such a system can prove to benot only cost effective, but also a highly organised and efficient way to help adhere to the HSE standards.

    Overall increasing patient safety while minimising the workload.
