Derby Inpatient Improvement Project (DIPS)

Summary

In both 2012 and 2013, the National Inpatient Diabetes Audit (NaDIA) showed the Trust had higher numbers of medication, prescription, management and insulin errors than the national average. In response the Derby Insulin Safety Group (ISG) comprising a senior diabetes inpatient specialist nurse (DISN), a pharmacist, head of patient safety, quality and improvement and a consultant diabetologist was formed. The Group made change at multiple levels to improve the standards of all aspects of diabetes care in the hospitals.
