Learning from Deaths Policy

 For many people death under the care of the North Cumbria University Hospital is an inevitable outcome and they experience excellent care from in the months or years leading up to their death. However some patients experience poor quality provision resulting from multiple contributory factors, which often include poor leadership and system-wide failures. Staff work tirelessly under increasing pressures to deliver safe, high-quality healthcare. When mistakes happen, providers working with their partners need to do more to understand the causes.

The purpose of reviews and investigations of deaths which problems in care might have contributed to is to learn in order to prevent recurrence. Reviews and investigations are only useful for learning purposes if their findings are shared and acted upon including cross cutting themes.
