Abstract :

This study of documentation an important and essential component of clinical practice, of blood results within Walesâ?? largest teaching hospital and assess the quality of documentation. The criteria we will work towards have been agreed by at least 50% of a cohort of 50 doctors working in the University hospital of Wales as essential documentation points. Over the space of our audit, we found in general documentation was not adequately adhering to CG2 guidelines with respect to blood results. Our first audit found that only 50% of blood results these were documented. After implementing a small change; a poster presentation and teaching session in junior doctor group teaching, our second audit showed worse documentation, with only 25% of blood results being documented. We then implemented a further change; consultant led teaching session during the foundation group mandatory programme. A questionnaire was distributed with over 50 responses returned. This showed that the over 90% of the cohort of doctors knew how to correctly document bloods and 100% of the doctors knew of at least one reason for which documentation was important. The third audit showed drastic improvement of blood results being correctly documented. In conclusion, our poster and teaching sessions have adequately highlighted to doctors the importance and correct method of documenting blood results. From our questionnaire it was obviously the main reason for poor documentation is time constraints. Electronic signature, to record that results have been actively looking at may be a viable method of saving junior's time.
