Annual Maternity Quality and Safety Programme Report 2018 – 2019

The West Coast District Health Board is pleased to present the Maternity Quality and Safety Programme Annual Report for 2018/19.
The West Coast has had a busy year again this year as we work towards the development of a Maternity strategy that will guide us for the next five years. A broad
framework was presented to a Hui in February this year and we now continue to refine the outcomes of the feedback. This work along with the realignment of the West
Coast health system beyond maternity has prompted much discussion about how we best meet the needs of our maternity population. The discussions have also developed
into how maternity then sits alongside the other work happening particularly in the well child and mental health spaces.

What monitoring will be done to ensure there is no public health risk from the contamination of Westport beaches from dead carcasses after the 1080 drop in the headwaters of the Buller River.

RE Official Information Act request WCDHB 9377

I refer to your email, dated 24 November 2019, requesting the following information under the Official Information Act from West Coast DHB in relation to 1080 aerial drops of 1080 pellets. Specifically:

As the local Medical Officer of Health authorises 1080 aerial drops of 1080 pellets:

1.What monitoring will be done to ensure there is no public health risk from the contamination of Westport beaches from dead carcasses after the 1080 drop in the headwaters of the Buller River?

The carcasses have been collected and buried. There is no public health risk, provided that people do not disturb the burial site and come into direct contact with the carcasses. As a general rule, people should avoid having direct contact with the bodies of dead animals (regardless of what has caused the animals to die), particularly when decomposition has set in.

2.As the official tests have found no 1080, as opposed to independent testing that has found presence of 1080 and other ingredients of 1080 pellets in several animal species, what possibilities will be investigated by health authorities?

Any information the DHB holds about vaccination / immunisation rates for its health workers.

RE Official Information Act request WCDHB 9354

I refer to your email dated 3 October 2019 requesting the following information under the Official Information Act from West Coast DHB, (this being a follow-up request to our response to your original request WCDHB 9329). This request pertains to vaccination and immunisation rates among staff.

  • Is the rate or proportion of health staff who’d be immune currently, for example against pertussis.  In your charts, I can see that over the 7 years to 2019 Canterbury DHB gave out 1592 pertussis vaccinations to staff.  In West Coast, I can see from your chart that in last 5 years 177 staff were given pertussis vaccines, which is offered 5 yearly.  What this doesn’t tell me is what the proportion of staff is who are up to date – I’d assume that every ten years, all staff would need to have a booster to gain full staff immunity to pertussis, meaning that you’d expect about half of staff to have boosters every five years, when they’re offered.  I’m trying to work out how close to full immunity hospital staff might be – not many DHBs seem to know, and the few that do have rates that vary hugely between regions.
  • Could you tell me how many health workers were at the DHB on average over the years you’ve been tracking vaccinations, or better yet the actual current rates of immunity among your staff?
