Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust,

For the purposes of this request a critical haemorrhage incident is defined as:
“A major haemorrhage, normally from an artery, which is likely to result in death within a period of time that may be as short as minutes, because of the rapid internal or external loss of circulating blood volume.”

Please can you supply me with the following:
Q1: The number of instances of Critical Haemorrhage Incidents the trust dealt with in 2020/2021 & 2021/2022 (if financial limits are likely to be hit please contact me before refusal) please include incidents regardless of who they effected (Patients, Staff, Volunteers, Visitors & Contractors)

Q2: Does HPFT have equipment to deal with critical haemorrhage available in wards and other patient areas? If so can you provide a list of this equipment? By equipment I mean Tourniquets, Trauma/Israeli Dressings (not first aid/ambulance dressings) & Haemostatics.

Q3: If Critical Haemorrhage Equipment is available do you ensure staff are trained in it's use? If so which staff is this training accessible too (e.g. Registered Health Care Professional's only, All clinical staff to include HCA's/Support workers, All Staff)

Please only consider this request in relation to Mental Health & Learning Disability Services.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Jones

Dear FOI (HERTFORDSHIRE PARTNERSHIP UNIVERSITY NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

Thank you for your response. My query should be applied with reference to inpatients generally. I understand that HPFT provides MH services but is also responsible for the "physical health" of patients, staff, contractors and visitors while they are on their premises.

It is not beyond the relms of possibility that HPFT may have to provide initial/immediate care to a Catastrophic/Critical Haemorrhage incident either delibrate (self harm/assault etc) or accidental (falls/use of equipment etc).

Yours sincerely,

Ben Jones
