Published: 03 Nov 2015
Mortality rates in children’s intensive care units across the country remain very low, despite only 15% of them meeting recommended nurse staffing levels, the 2015 Paediatric Intensive Care Audit report finds.
Of 19,760 admissions of children to paediatric intensive care units (PICUs) in 2014, less than 4% died after being admitted, according to the latest report from the Paediatric Intensive Care Audit Network (PICANet – a combined project from the Universities of Leeds and Leicester). The audit is commissioned by HQIP as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme.
