A hospital in Stanmore has received a national award for its safety standards for the fourth year running.
The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) announced last month that they had once again been awarded National Joint Registry (NJR) Quality Data Provider for 2022/23.
The Quality Data Provider scheme was launched to give hospitals public recognition for achieving excellence in the promotion of patient safety standards.
The NJR collect information on hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacement surgery and monitor the performance of joint replacement implants and reward hospitals that have met targets.
Nicky Saunders, theatres business support manager at the RNOH, said: “I am enormously proud of the hard work my team have put in this year and to receive this award four years running is a testament to their professionalism and dedication to excellence.
“Our work guards our patients’ safety and provides research information for better prosthesis development, which bring us great satisfaction, knowing we are helping many patients in the years to come!”
Amanda Denton, lead clinical nurse specialist for upper limb, said: “Wow such a fantastic achievement! Our teams’ hard work of collecting NJR PROMS, consent and fully completing the forms has paid off. I’m proud to be part of the success.”
