All patients aged over 16 years-of-age who spend 24 hours or more in hospital this month can take part.

The National Inpatient Experience Survey is underway, and people who've attended Naas General Hospital this month are invited to take part.

The survey will ask patients about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the care they received and will give them the opportunity to share their experiences, as well as to say what improvements they believe are necessary in hospitals.

This year patients will be asked about admission to hospital, the ward environment, care and treatment, discharge from hospital, as well as 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.

All patients aged over 16 years-of-age who spend 24 hours or more in hospital and are discharged during the month of September are eligible to participate.

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

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