PATIENTS--All critically ill patients () transferred between hospitals by the unit from to RESULTS Patients were transferred by road and 13 by air. There was a wide variation in age (range 6 weeks to 87 years), diagnosis, reason for transfer, support required, and distance by:   Intensive care patients are moved within hospital—for example, to the imaging department—or between hospitals for upgraded treatment or because of bed shortages We will concentrate on transport of adults between hospitals, but the principles are similar for transfers within hospitals.

The safe transfer of all hospital patients, especially those who are critically ill, is of crucial importance, demanding organisational, as well as clinical skills. Safe Transfer and Retrieval of Patients (STaR) is aimed at all health care workers involved with inter and intra-hospital transfers.

It provides a much needed structured approach to. In these instances, to safeguard patient care, ARV is authorised to nominate a hospital to receive the patient. This is called a 'defined transfer' and reflects the time critical need for appropriate care for a critically ill patient.

These guidelines briefly outline the assessment and transfer procedures for 'defined transfers'. 3 The transfer of critically ill patients is not at present standardised throughout the UK.

Studies have shown that as many as 40 percent of patients over 65 had medication errors after leaving the hospital, and 18 percent of Medicare patients discharged from a hospital.

Patients are transferred between hospitals for multiple reasons beyond medical necessity, for example, to adjust for patient preferences, bed availability, and hospital staffing patterns. This creates a setting in which complex and often critically ill patients are subject to.

Nurses should properly arrange critically ill elderly patients with COVID and complete the evaluation in the shortest time pos - sible. In the meanwhile, urgent care, such as wheelchair/flat - bed transfer, oxygen inhalation, electrocardiogram monitoring, sputum suction, and establishment of venous access, should be completed.

There is significant interest in the secondary transport of the critically ill and injured. High profile cases entailing the long distance transfer of patients have highlighted the lack of availability of critical care beds and appropriate systems for transferring this patient group.

These and other issues have culminated in the release of Comprehensive Critical Care by the Department of. Introduction.

Inter-hospital transfer may be required for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) if patients with COVID develop severe acute respiratory distress syndrome within hospitals with only basic ventilation facilities.

During episodes of patient transport outside of isolation, potential breaches of infection control can occur. The CDI score was developed to account for C difficile disease pressure from the sending hospital, an established risk factor for HA-CDI.8, 9 C difficile disease pressure is defined as the number of HA-CDI cases present in the sending hospital in that calendar year.
