Adverse Event Reporting
Read Chapters 5, 6, and 7 in our textbook. After reviewing this weekâ€™s required reading, consider the following scenario: You are the lead of the risk management team that has been assigned to evaluate an incident that has occurred. You will be preparing a report for the CEO of the hospital that includes all system failures that contributed to the adverse event as well as utilizing a CQI tool. You will be using the Adverse Event template to complete the three parts to the assignment. Note: If you have responded substantively to each of the content items within the three parts of the assignment, the paper should be between six and seven pages.
Part One: Description of Adverse Event (Complete Part One of the Adverse Event template)
|# of Discharges||# of Surgical Cases||# of Medication Errors||# of Patient Falls||# of Post Operative Hemorrhage|
Part Two: CQI Tool (Complete Part Two of the Adverse Event template)
Choose a CQI Tool that best suits your chosen Adverse Event from the following list:
Use the CQI Tool to illustrate the use of the tool with your chosen adverse event. You will be responsible for creating the CQI Tool, completing the tool, taking a screenshot, and copying/pasting the screenshot under the instructions in Part Two CQI Tool in the Adverse Event template.
Part Three: Future Prevention (Complete Part Three of the Adverse Event template)
After describing the event in Part One and using a CQI tool in Part Two, apply the PDCA model to summarize the process and steps that your team would recommend to the CEO to prevent this adverse event from reoccurring. Make sure to include who (health care personnel) would be accountable at each step of the process. Complete the Explanation column in Part 3 of the Adverse Event template.
It is important to keep in mind that some processes require a checks and balance system. You will need to determine if one of the steps you are recommending would require a checks and balance step and why it is necessary.
