AUDIT


I am involved in regular audit meetings at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, Singapore. As a consultant in the department, I have been also elected by my senior colleagues to be part of the hospital risk management committee


Tissue Audit Committee Member, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. I support the Head of Pathology in the audit of cytological and histological correlation for fine needle aspirations performed in the head and neck.


At St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, I was involved in an audit of wound infection from mixing urological patients with head and neck patients on the same ward. This audit highlighted the increase in nosocomial infections associated most commonly with abdominal wound infections. We found an unacceptably high level of coliforms
in head and neck wound infections, instigated change necessary by separating head and neck and neurosurgical patients away from those who had abdominal and urological surgery and re-auditing our wound infection rates. The change instigated did indeed show a significant drop in infection rates. I was also personally involved in auditing the quality and completeness of consent forms in surgery at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. This audit demonstrated several shortcomings in consent form filing and accuracy of
information provided. A lecture discussion to our entire department followed by a repeat audit assessing the
impact of change did show significant improvement in quality of consent forms completed.
