  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Canterbury DHB Serious Adverse Events Report 2017/18

Each year DHBs are required to release information relating to serious adverse events which have occurred within their hospitals. A serious adverse event (SAE) is one which has resulted in significant additional treatment, major loss of function, is life threatening or has led to an unexpected death.

The DHB is required to review these events and report them to the Health, Quality & Safety Commission. The Commission then collates this information and it is published on their website www.hqsc.govt.nz

A media release about this 2017/18 Serious Adverse Events Report is also available in our health news section.
