Hospital-acquired complications (HACs) information kit

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, in consultation with clinical experts from across Australia, has developed the hospital-acquired complications (HACs) information kit. The kit has been developed to improve the safety and quality of health services, and outcomes for Australian patients.

The information kit includes a suite of resources for clinicians, safety and quality professionals, managers and executives, governing bodies and others, to put in place strategies that reduce the occurrence of HACs. Monitoring HACs, and using strategies in the information kit to reduce the occurrence of HACs, can be used as evidence during accreditation against the National Safety and Quality Health Service standards.
