We are unable to supply information covering all catheterisations as coding standards only require coding when required for retention of urine. Catheterisation for comfort or as an integral part of a procedure (e.g. Caesarean section or hip replacement) is not recorded separately. Much of the long term catheterisation in situ is undertaken in the wider community (such as nursing homes, with any subsequent infection being dealt with by GPs) and not the acute hospital. Therefore, the figures below are for the acute hospital inpatients only and relate to events during their stay.

 

  1. Your most recent annual figure for the number of patients fitted with a urinary catheter in situ;

Response –  For full financial year 2012/13.

1. Please can you provide information about how you monitor mobilisation of frontline RRVs and ambulance crews across your trust. 

 

By mobilisation I mean the time taken for a crew to 'go mobile' after been given/passed a call by HEOC.

Response – This is not currently actively monitored on a regular basis. Times are recorded within our CAD system which detail time data sent to vehicle, time crew accepted, and time mobile. A review of Service-wide performance is held every morning and any issues in delayed mobilisation are identified here and passed on for further investigation. These would usually come from a missed Red 1 or Red 2 call (8 minute response) and part of the review would involve analysing mobilisation time.

 

2. Please can you also provide the mobilisation average for the past 12 months, including (if possible) charts showing the full data range by month if possible. 

Response – This data is not recorded within our CAD.

 

3. Please can you also provide details of exactly how crews (singletons/rrvs or double manned ambulances) go mobile, ie is this via personal radio button activation, via going mobile on the vehicle MDT, verbally by acknowledging the message from HEOC on personal radio, or verbally on vehicle radio, automatically when the vehicle reaches a certain speed, or by another method (please state method).

Response – Data in relation to the call (address, age & sex of patient etc, and nature of call) are gathered by the call taker and passed via our CAD to an MDT within the cab of each vehicle. Crews are then mobilised via radio contact (personal radio if away from vehicle, or vehicle radio if in it). The crew then accept the call by pressing a button on the MDT screen and then confirm their mobile time in the same way. On scene time is re3corded via an auto-attend system and by the crew pressing an on-scene button.

 

4. Please can you also confirm if any exemptions are allowed, what they are and if these exemptions are removed from the data averages, or not included in the mobilisation figures, for example, an exemption might be a delay due to essential restocking or when using facilities etc.

Response – We currently have no pre-agreed exemptions, though these may be introduced in the future.

 

5. Please can you also confirm if you report your mobilisation to any external agencies and if you have any plans to change mobilisation standards, reporting or procedures. 

Response – Not applicable.

 

6. Please can you also provide any further information you have about mobilisation in your trust. Including in this any details of mobilisation standards set or agreed with commissioners centrally or locally.
