    Default HIQA publishes terms of reference for Mrs Halappanavar inquiry

    The inquiry will investigate the safety, quality and standards of services provided by the Health Service Executive to patients, including pregnant women, at risk of clinical deterioration. It will examine the diagnosis and management of patients with sepsis and the assessment will be made against the National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare.
    The investigation will also examine the reporting and management of patient safety incidents and the prompt identification and management of clinically deteriorating patients.

    If in the course of its investigation HIQA has grounds to believe there are further or other serious risks to patients, it may ask the Authority or the Minister for its terms of reference to be extended.

    Investigation into the safety, quality and standards of services provided by the Health Service Executive to patients, including pregnant women, at risk of clinical deterioration and as reflected in the care and treatment provided to Savita Halappana

    HIQA have published the terms of reference of the inquiry into the death of Mrs Halappanavar and her baby. The terms of reference are far-reaching and hopefully will convinvce the husband of the deceased that the Irish people are taking the death of his wife seriously.

    Tellingly, they are seeking to have the authority to extend the terms of reference should the evidance indicate that it is necessary.

    Carefully drawn around the existing notes and no reference to statements about reasons given to the couple why a termination was not allowed?

    I'm sure the official medical notes will be beautifully presented and as anodyne as one would expect.

    The point is not what was done in the care of this woman. It is more about what was not done and the reasons why not.

    And everyone knows that.

    Perhaps. Stories like the one below don't help though.

    2. The Authority will review the arrangements that the HSE has in place to ensure that clinically deteriorating pregnant women, including those at risk of sepsis, receive care which is compliant with the National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare and relevant national and international evidence of what is known to achieve best outcomes.

    You are wrong and your attempt to denigrate the people working for HIQA is dissappointing.

    Everyone doesn't know it. It may turn out that having a termination would have made no difference.

    There is nothing new or exciting in the news that 'official' Ireland has a habit of drawing up inquiries which report to the right or left of an issue but never on the central questions on the issue itself.

    It is an old scam in Ireland and not new in and around the Health Service at all.

    Two of the people closest to the issue, Praveen and his wife, thought differently. She was the patient so I think we have reason to believe that they knew more than you or I or this HIQA caper ever will.

    Really? They know more than qualified medical practitioners? What a load of rubbish.

    The central question is whether Mrs Halappanavar received the extend and quality of care shew was entitled to.

    That is what HIQA are investigating.

    If it had been carried out when first requested, I suspect that she would still be alive now. The human body starts discharging all kinds of muck whilst still alive but in a moribund state. The longer a foetus in that state is left inside a woman's womb, the far greater chance of sepsis there is.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.
