The care patients receive while in hospital is typically excellent. However, patients who require different levels of care over an extended period of time in multiple settings often have trouble receiving care across different parts of the health system and at transition points. Communication can be difficult, wait times can be long, and patients and families can feel like they are 'falling through cracks' in the system. We will continue to work with our regional partners and build on the work that was completed last year to standardize the care and order sets used for hip fractures across the SE LHIN.
KHSC is fully engaged with our community partners to support patients with complex-acute and chronic conditions.
In 2018-19, TOGETHER WITH PATIENTS AND FAMILIES we will:
Improve hip-fracture surgery wait times so that ninety percent of admitted patients with the most responsible diagnosis of hip fracture receive surgery within 48-hours.
How are we doing?
Quarterly results will be shared as they become available. Check back soon!
