This Month's QI Story - COVID Ward Rounds

In this QI Storyboard "Necessity is the mother of innovation - COVID chronicles”, Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre describe how they changed their ward rounds during the COVID peak. 

They used fully electronic patient recording with live monitoring to conduct virtual intensive care rounds, thus minimising physical interactions in a confined space. This led to faster efficacious ward rounds with more nursing involvement in shared decision making.

Read their QI Story to find out how they achieved this.
