Performance data is available to the public.
CALHN’s World-class care snapshot (1 July 2020 – 31 December 2021)
This snapshot outlines many of the systems in place to assist our multi-disciplinary workforce to understand and perform their safety and quality responsibilities and deliver safe, effective care for patients.
This World-class care snapshot celebrates our achievements and outlines the advances we have implemented across the network in 2020 and 2021 to how we work, as we continue to embed a culture of continuous safety and quality improvement.
Safety and Quality Account 2019/20
The 2019/20 Safety and Quality Account provides patients, carers, our staff and the community with information about how safety and quality is monitored and improved throughout our health service.
It covers activities and strategies taken by CALHN to improve performance against key quality and safety measures, patient safety priorities, consumer participation and service improvements.
The report demonstrates the major role CALHN plays in the health care of so many South Australians who visit our services throughout the year and showcases a number of the improvement strategies that have had an impact on the way we deliver our care.
Here is a snapshot of CALHN patient incidents in 2020.
