Do you know when to REACH? Hospitals and Multipurpose Services across the Southern Sector of the Western NSW LHD (WNSWLHD) will be rolling out the REACH system. The REACH model is already in place across the Central and Northern Sectors of the WNSWLHD. REACH is a system that helps patients, their families and carer/s escalate their concerns with staff about worrying changes in a patient’s condition. The REACH model is a graded approach to patient and family activated escalation:
• Recognise: patients and families can often recognise signs of deterioration before they are clinically evident.
• Engage: we encourage patients and families to engage with their treating team if they are concerned that ‘something is not right’.
• Act: patients and families can request a ‘clinical review’.
• Call: patients and families can call for an independent review if they are still concerned and other avenues are exhausted.
• Help: help will be on its way In Western NSW when you call our REACH number your call will be answered by a nurse from our virtual care team. They will coordinate an independent review of the patient.
If they do not help you with your concerns or the condition is getting worse then ACT. Ask to speak to the Nurse in Charge. Ask for a “Clinical Review”. This should occur within 30 minutes.
