Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • 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 2018/19

Each year DHBs are required to release information relating to serious adverse events that have occurred within their hospitals. A serious adverse event (SAE) is one that 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 2018/19 Serious Adverse Events Report is also available in our health news section.
