The Mater People Awards

The Mater People Awards, 2022

The Mater People Awards were held earlier in the month and our Active Inpatient Rehabilitation Team at Springfield shared in the winning of the award for Contribution to Clinical Excellence (Team). The team was nominated based on its management of orthopaedic fractures (placed in the top 25th percentile for both FIM efficiency for functional outcomes and length of stay) as well as on positive feedback from the Australasian Rehabilitation Outcomes Centre (AROC) about quality improvements in the service including thorough and consistent assessment of stairs.

This award is a wonderful reflection on the enormous efforts of our Active team in helping these patients get back on their feet and facilitate safe and expeditious discharge.
