The video introduces a new way to introduce patients to important information about their safety during a hospital stay. The information is presented in an ‘airline style’ briefing aimed at reducing avoidable complications – such as blood clots, pressure ulcers, or falls.

The film is designed to be provided with an information card for patients to read to help them look after themselves during their hospital stay. This focuses on eight areas:

  • infection prevention
  • speaking to staff if patients have any problems or questions
  • medicine safety
  • pressure ulcer avoidance
  • correct personal information
  • discharge from hospital
