Reducing mortality at Great Western Hospitals, Swindon by implementing AKI care bundle within 24 hours of alert

The recognition work stream is being led by our partners at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon and aims to reduce the incidence of mortality by 3% from AKI by ensuring the implementation of the AKI care bundle within 24 hours of alert. There has been a marked improvement on the care bundle being completed within 24 hours and work is underway to ensure that more care bundles are completed for AKI alerts.  Overall mortality among those with coded acute kidney injury has fallen from 18.4% in the financial year 2015-2016 to 16.6% in 2016-2017.
