Activity Escalation Process Women and Childrens, Obstetrics

exp date isn't null, but text field is


This escalation policy is designed to support the unit coordinator to manage the resources to sustain the service when:

  • Staffing levels/skill mix are not adequate for current workload - the Unit Coordinator has responsibility to reallocate staff across departments and sites as required to ensure safety
  • Acuity of patients is causing concern
  • When bed capacity is such that it will have the potential to impact on safe patient flow
