This plan is for use for Internal Incidents within either of the hospital sites in the Trust (Ashford or St. Peters – ASPH or the Bradley/Walton Care Units (see appendix for BU/WCU escalation/incident response). It is not possible to develop a plan for every individual scenario; therefore, this is a generic plan that provides a framework to facilitate a coordinated response.

 

Aims and Objectives

  • To support ASPH in the identification of when to call an Internal Incident
  • To ensure an effective and coordinated response
  • To ensure the safety of patients and staff
