Clinical Governance, Quality and Safety in Saint John of God Hospital and Saint Joseph’s Centre

Clinical Governance is defined as "The framework through which healthcare organisations are accountable for continuously improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care by creating an environment in which excellence in clinical care will flourish."

The Board of Directors of Saint John of God Hospital Limited is fully committed to discharging its duties and obligations to patients, residents, day attendees, staff and all who come into contact with our services.

The Sub-committee is chaired by Professor Michael Rigby with the other members being Br Gregory McCrory OH, Dr Bernadette Mangan and Mr Bill Cunningham. This committee meets at least six times per year; it sets key performance indicators for the services and monitors the programme of work to ensure satisfactory quality standards as well as reports from regulatory bodies that inspect both the Hospital and St Joseph’s Centre.

The Clinical Governance, Quality & Safety Executive Committee meets on a monthly basis and is chaired by the Chief Executive. The membership of the Executive Committee is as follows: Chief Executive, Clinical Director, Director of St Joseph’s Centre, Head of Operations & Quality, Director of Nursing (Saint John of God Hospital), Heads of Clinical Departments (rotational), Healthcare Risk Officer, Nursing Practice Development Manager, Representative from the Medical Advisory Board, Chairperson Risk Committee, Chairperson Health & Safety Committee, Chairperson Compliance & Continuous Quality Improvement (CCQI) Committee, Chairperson Consumer Council & Advocacy Committee, Chairperson Patient Satisfaction & Complaints, Chairperson Clinical Audit Committee and a representative from Cluain Mhuire Services.
