Clinical Safety and Quality Indicators

At Calvary Adelaide Hospital, we take quality and safety seriously. We also support a culture of openness and transparency to foster positive partnerships with our consumers. To provide transparency, we are pleased to publish hospital quality and safety data alongside the Australian Commission in Safety and Quality in Healthcare benchmarks.

We take falls prevention seriously

A fall with serious injury involves a fracture or a head injury. We will conduct a risk screen on arrival and will develop a personalised fall prevention plan to reduce the chances of any falls. Please make sure you come to our facility with properly fitted shoes with a non-slip sole.


Calvary Adelaide Hospital is committed to keeping our patients, staff and community safe. We are continually striving to make improvements and deliver exceptional care. We are undergoing a review of our current patient risk assessment and falls prevention procedures to keep our patients safe.


What does this mean?

A lower number means fewer falls, we aim to have the lowest number and be under the industry benchmark. The number of falls is divided by the number of people who have been sent home from our facility. Doing this allows us to compare with industry.

We take infections seriously

We will perform COVID screening on arrival as well as conduct a risk assessment for any possible infections. This is to ensure we have a safe hospital with the lowest chance of infection possible.
