Patient Identification

Overview

South Perth Hospital acknowledges that failure to correctly identify patients and match that information to the intended clinical intervention is a serious risk to patient safety.  South Perth Hospital is committed to creating and maintaining a sustainable, high quality environment in which all staff verify that the person they are attending to is the one for whom the treatment is intended.

A positive patient identification process is an integral part of patient care. The nurse assigned to the patient will check the patient’s identity at the beginning of a care episode and will repeat the process at each patient intervention to maintain the patient’s safety.
