Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Quality improvement must be an institutional priority for any hospital that seeks to achieve and maintain MagnetTM designation. At one large academic medical center, the commitment to quality has included a focus on empowering staff to identify and make changes to improve patient safety. Implementation of an event reporting system to provide data for decision-making and action is one effective way to advance interdisciplinary team efforts to build a safer patient care environment. Vigilant monitoring and active reporting of events that pose real or potential patient safety threats are meaningful ways for staff, at all levels and from all disciplines, to participate in the collection of data that can be used to improve care. In July 2004, an automated patient event reporting system was implemented, replacing the previous homegrown paper system that was cumbersome, disjointed and underutilized. The web-based reporting system enables staff to report an event and trigger notification of the event to the appropriate team members for their review and follow-up. Analysis and action on the data is supported by an interdisciplinary team of 17 members that regularly reviews reports, identifies trends, and assigns responsibility for further investigation and action. Using these data, fourteen indicators have been selected and assigned to interdisciplinary quality improvement committees for ongoing review and action-planning. Since implementing the event system and the interdisciplinary team review, a number of opportunities for improvements have been identified. Three examples system changes that were made will be explained. [Please contact presenter for more information.]
