Irish National ICU Audit

INICUA

The Irish National Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Audit is a quality and patient safety initiative that measures the quality of care in each ICU, benchmarking against international standards. Activity within the participating ICUs is carefully measured to help improve the standard of critical care within hospital groups and across the country.

Findings

The Irish National ICU Audit (INICUA) was established by the NOCA in 2013 and focuses on the care of patients in adult Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and Paediatric Intensive Care Units (PICUs). This is the first report from the audit and examines data from 6,186 adult patients and 1,463 paediatric patients across 14 Units.

Patients

As a former ICU patient, an advocate for improving ICU aftercare, and chairperson of ICUsteps Dublin, I welcome being public and patient (PPI) representative on the ICU audit governance committee. I trust that clinical audit will lead to improvements in clinical care and ultimately better outcomes for patients and I am fully committed to this process.
