UPDATED Patient Audit Proforma

Please find a paper version of the Online Data Collection Web Tool below for your information. All data entry will be carried out through the online data collection web tool; this proforma exists to assist.

Changes have been made for the Year 10 data collection (1 April 2023 - 31 Mar 2024). These include more granular questions about infection/sepsis, updates to reflect the NELA parsimonious risk score, and removal of questions about COVID-19 status.

The option for NELA Local Administrators to Enable/Disable some Quality Improvement questions on the webtool is still available. By default, the Quality Improvement (QI) questions on the NELA Webtool are enabled. Please contact us if you have any queries.
