Specialist assessment of Arthritic conditions
Arthritis incorporates over 200 conditions and we recognise that every patient’s experience will be different. Providing relief and treatment for arthritis have been the foundation of the Centre’s work, so you can be assured that you will be in expert hands.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is one condition, which can affect patients of all ages and involve joints, bones, muscles and other body systems. Thanks to our extensive work and experience in this field, we know how important it is to consider a patient’s day-to-day life when assessing the severity of the condition and ways in which it may be managed.
Latest Clinical Outcomes January to December 2011
Since April 2007, the Healthcare Commission has begun collecting key performance indicators (KPIs) from healthcare providers. The Horder Centre’s own KPIs have been established for a number of years and to 31st December 2011, is no exception:
|Rate of MRSA infection||0.0%|
|Wound Infections – Hips||0.11%|
|Wound Infections – Knees||0.22%|
|Unplanned Returns to Theatre||0.09%|
|Unplanned Transfers to Another Hospital||0.36%|
At The Horder Centre, patient care is our top priority and infection control procedures are integral to that commitment. We recognise the importance of managing infections by observing strict guidelines designed to control and reduce infection rates as set out by the Government. Equally, we understand that the well-being of our patients is greatly improved if they can be reassured that our hospital is dedicated to creating the optimum conditions to avert incidences of risk of infection.
