(Part Three): Applying a taxonomy for patient complaints in a New Zealand regional hospital
Patient complaints are a valuable source of information about the quality and safety of healthcare systems; however, they are generally addressed in an individualised way. To enable patient complaints to drive quality and safety improvement, a standardised method of categorising complaints is required. Reader, Gillespie, and Robers (2014) created such a taxonomy. Our study applies this system to patient complaints in a regional hospital in New Zealand and discusses implications for quality and safety improvement in this setting. This presentation will enable delegates to gain an understanding of the value of patient complaints data, and how it can be used to improve healthcare systems in a systematic way.
