A number of hospitals have expressed difficulty obtaining the FTE for their hospital/campus. The FTE denominator is required for all hospitals (not aged care homes) participating in the OE surveillance module however the data form will be amended to include NA (not available). If FTE are not provided by the hospital a report of OEs per staff cannot be provided. The updated hardcopy OE denominator form and web form will be available on the VICNISS website Monday 11 September 2017.
