Podcast: Walk and Talk Improvement, Episode 16: From error to excellence: a nurse’s clinical audit journey

Listen to the Podcast: Walk and Talk Improvement, Episode 16: From error to excellence: a nurse’s clinical audit journey

Episode details:

Close your eyes and imagine this: You’re a surgical nurse in general theatre. It’s the end of a long shift and you’re scrubbed in for your last case. The surgeon has closed up the patient when you realise the instrument count is incorrect and the patient is now already in recovery. What do you do next?

In episode 16 of the All-Ireland podcast series Walk and Talk Improvement, we hear from Teresa Donnelly, who shares how this incident in general theatre catapulted her clinical audit journey. Teresa has since revolutionised the culture of general theatre at Sligo University Hospital, improving both patient and staff safety.

Featuring: Teresa Donnelly, Director, Centre of Education for Nursing and Midwifery, Sligo Leitrim W Cavan.

Hosted by Selene Daly, Clinical Audit Facilitator, HSE National Centre for Clinical Audit.
