Summary

The National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Communicating for Safety Standard requires organisations to have correct ID and procedure matching systems in place to maintain the identity of the patient and to ensure that the patient receives the care intended for them. Whilst the term 'patient' is used in the title of this policy, it may be at times used interchangeably with clients or residents, depending on the context of the health setting.
