Sterilizing Services Weighting Identification Tool

As part of a review of the quality of data being provided to NSW Health by Sterilizing Departments, the Sterilizing Services Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Reference Group identified wide variations in the application of weights to activity data across the State.

A comprehensive weighting identification tool has been developed to assist hospital Sterilizing Departments in the applying of weights consistently for NSW Health hospital Sterilizing Departments.
