National Audit of Hospital Mortality Annual Report 2016
The purpose of this report is to provide patients, families, the public and the wider health system with an account of the National Audit of Hospital Mortality (NAHM) and its findings across an initial number of key diseases/medical conditions. This report outlines how the audit is used by hospitals and how the National Office of Clinical Audit (NOCA) engages with hospitals. Information is presented across six key diagnoses: acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, ischaemic stroke, haemorrhagic stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (chronic lung disease) and pneumonia. These diagnoses were chosen based on clinical and methodological selection criteria, to ensure a focus on quality, safety and improvement in acute hospital care.
