Central Adelaide LHN captures data on key performance areas and this data is made publicly available through multiple sources.
This data helps patients, consumers, carers and the community make informed decisions about their care.
CALHN’s Safety and Quality Account 2019/20
CALHN’s most recent 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.
