Improve preparation of emergency equipment

This is a Less Involved QI – includes PIP QI measures

All general practices need to ensure comprehensive emergency protocols, equipment and medicines are in place to achieve best practice and manage adverse events following immunisation (AEFI).

This QI activity assists general practices to prepare emergency equipment, including ensuring the anaphylaxis kit is fully stocked and up to date.

Thank you to Dr John Moran from King Street Medical Centre in Murwillumbah for suggesting this activity.

Goal

Improve preparation of emergency equipment.

Measure

Results of emergency equipment, stock and expiry date audits.

Starting point
Possible improvement ideas
  • Assign a staff member to complete regular audits of your practice’s emergency and response kit. Record and compare results each audit.
  • Create and personalise your own audit sheet, recording stock levels and expiry dates. Consider having a digital copy to easily refer to.
