Monaghan Report 2022
This review, a decade on from an initial review of ambulance ramping at Flinders Medical
Centre (FMC) in 2012, was sought by the SALHN board to review concerns relating to
performance with regards to emergency department overcrowding, long waits for ambulance
transfer of care and long waits for patients requiring hospital admission.
The intent of the second review is to make comment and recommendations on the current
performance and clinical practices at FMC including patient flow throughout the hospital, the
impact of the Southern Health Expansion Plan (SHEP) on Emergency Department models of
care and staff culture in ED.
Progress against the initial 52 recommendations in the 2012 FMC report is also considered throughout this review to assist in informing priority actions and the need for targeted initiatives to be driven by a collaborative clinical leadership group to achieve transformative change.
