REF:         2018-74 

Subject:     Cardiac sudden death  

    

 

Request:

I am working on a research project that aims to improve cardiac sudden death incidents in mental health inpatients and I would very much appreciate your help in gathering information that would support my research.

I would like to have information on the number of Cardiac related Sudden Death at your hospital in the past 10 years. I would also like to know how many of these patients were under the age of 40 at the time of death. This would help compare the incidents with those of inpatients in mental health hospitals.

 

 

Response:

We do not record this information electronically.

 

This will involve a manual review of the records and will take more than 2.5 days to try to retrieve and collect the information.

To protect you and our staff during the current outbreak of Covid-19 we’ve put in place significant restrictions on hospital visitors.
