Why do we do Mortality reviews?
Within BCUHB mortality reviews have been in place since 2012. Mortality reviews are undertaken in two stages.
Stage 1 is undertaken in the mortuary by a clinician at the point of death certification on all deaths that occur in hospital. This review is to identify 'potential issues in healthcare'. These then progress to stage 2 review where a more detailed review is undertaken, looking at all aspects of care delivery.

Plans for next twelve months?
Over the next twelve months we will:
1. move all acute hospital sites across to DATIX mortality module
2. work with area teams to plan go-live of mortality reviews via DATIX for all community hospital deaths
3. work with national team to develop DATIX mortality further for the rest of Wales to use.
