PICANet - 2015 Annual Report

2015 sees the publication of our 12th annual report, with data presented on 59,642 paediatric intensive care admissions (aged under 16 years) and 1,430 admissions (aged 16 years and over), in the three year period January 2012 to December 2014.

The latest report from the Paediatric Intensive Care Audit Network shows that despite a year on year increase in activity, mortality rates following admission for paediatric intensive care remain very low at less than 4%.This is at a time when only 15% of UK PICUs met the current nurse staffing levels as prescribed by the Paediatric Intensive Care Society Standards. Recent data from across the NHS has highlighted the use of Agency and Bank nursing staff and there are similar findings in Paediatric Intensive Care.
