​The Children’s Healthcare Network Paediatric Clinical Nurse Consultants identified a need for standardised paediatric risk/nursing assessment charts for acute paediatric in-patient units to:

  • meet the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards
  • reduce unwarranted clinical variation in the care of children across NSW
  • meet the clinical needs common to acute paediatric wards
  • avoid duplication and reduce the number of assessment charts
  • include mandated tools (e.g. falls, pressure injury, nutrition).
