Dr. Gerard O’Callaghan, Chief Executive Officer, South Infirmary-Victoria University Hospital, Cork describes one hospital’s experience of the reconfiguration of acute hospital services in Cork and Kerry.
Governance arrangements for the transitional hospital groups and the leadership posts which would be involved in these groups were dealt with by Prof. John Higgins when he addressed the HSE South Forum. Maureen Browne reports.
There are considerable challenges ahead for health managers in sustainably implementing the governance recommendations made by the HSE Investigative Group into the care and the death of the late Savita Halappanavar, writes Maureen Browne.
It makes no sense for a public hospital to be paid a private fee for one private patient who occupies a privately designated room and not for another, even though they may each have had the same procedure and occupy identical rooms writes Dr. Gerard O’Callaghan, Chief Executive Officer, South Infirmary-Victoria University Hospital, Cork.
We must interpret hospital mortality rates with caution, whilst acknowledging their potential importance in catalyzing care transformation, writes Dr. Padhraig Ryan, Trinity College Dublin & Harvard University.
