HIQA publishes long awaited critical ‘Portlaoise report’

By Dermot - 08th May 2015 | 8 views

“This investigation was initiated as a result of the negative experiences of a number of patients and their families in receipt of services in Portlaoise Hospital,” HIQA’s Chief Executive Phelim Quinn said,

“Their experiences highlighted significant deficiencies in the delivery of person-centered care at the hospital.

“This care fell well below the standard expected in a modern acute hospital. We would particularly like to pay tribute to the patients and families who made contact with the Authority to outline their experience of care within Portlaoise Hospital.

“Our findings point to failures, over a number of years by the HSE at a national, regional and local level to decisively address numerous clinical governance and management issues. This impacted upon the quality and safety of services provided at Portlaoise Hospital.”
