Reducing mortality in hospital

The recognition workstream is being led by our partners at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon. The aim is to reduce the incidence of mortality from acute kidney injury by 3% by ensuring the implementation of the AKI care bundle within 24 hours of alert.

There has been a marked improvement – overall mortality among those with coded acute kidney injury has fallen from 18.4% in 2015/16 to 16.6% in 2016/17.

Work is underway to ensure that more care bundles are completed for AKI alerts.
