Issue date10 February 2010

The Intrapartum Scorecard is a tool for monitoring and improving patient safety in maternity units.

 

Data collected using the scorecard can be used to:

 

  • demonstrate staffing and activity levels on the labour ward which can then be used prospectively to inform planning of staffing and activity and/or escalation procedures;

  • retrospectively provide evidence of staffing levels, activity and any action taken to escalate a situation where necessary;

  • support serious untoward incident investigations where information about these measures may contribute to the understanding of the situation at the time of the incident;

  • provide a record of activity and staffing over a period of time and feed into the RCOG dashboard. 

 

An updated version of the Scorecard (version 4) is now available with new functionality for retrieving and updating data, as well as bug fixes.

Please ensure that you are using this latest version. See section 5.2 of A guide to using the Intrapartum Scorecard issue 4 for information on importing data from version one of the Scorecard.

 

 

On 8 March 2010 the NPSA presented a webinar on implementing the Scorecard :
