Northland DHB Patient Safety & Quality Improvement Directorate
The Patient Safety & Quality Improvement Directorate (PSQID) was established in September 2012 and encompasses the former Quality Resource Unit. The Directorate now has a greater emphasis on improving patient safety and quality improvement, as well as playing a key role in supporting the management of adverse events (incidents) and complaints and ensuring the hospital is compliant with health standards through a regular national certification process.
