Facts about acute kidney injury:
- Between 262,000 and one million people admitted to hospital as an emergency will have AKI, of which just under a quarter will die.
- Of these, between 12,000 and 42,000 deaths could be prevented if patients received good treatment, according to Nice.
- A 2009 report from the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD) found only half of all patients with AKI had received good care, dropping to a third of those who developed it while in hospital.
- A third of patients suffered due to inadequate investigations, including health staff not carrying out "simple" and "basic" checks.
- Staff were also found to be "poor" at recognising symptoms and did not always refer patients to kidney specialists in time.
