Activity Escalation Process, Obstetrics.

This escalation policy is designed to support the unit coordinator to manage the resources to sustain the service when:

  • Staffing levels/skill mix are not adequate for current workload - the Unit Coordinator has responsibility to reallocate staff across departments and sites as required to ensure safety
  • Acuity of patients is causing concern
  • When bed capacity is such that it will have the potential to impact on safe patient flow
