It is part of the 4th National Inpatient Experience Survey.

HIQA is inviting patients to share their experiences of the hospital care they received during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is part of the fourth National Inpatient Experience Survey.

The survey will ask people aged 16 and over who spend 24 hours or more in a public acute hospital, and are discharged during the month of May, for their views on the care they received.

In this year’s survey patients will be asked about admission to hospital, the ward environment, care and treatment, discharge from hospital.

They may also be asked additional questions about their experiences in hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as staff communication while wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and contact with family and friends given visitor restrictions.

Rachel Flynn is HIQA’s Director of Health Information and Standards and Director of the National Care Experience Programme.

She joined Clem Ryan on this morning's edition of Kildare Today.
