Patient Safety Assessment

Patient Safety Assessment

Has your organization experienced a serious patient safety event?

Serious patient safety events rarely occur in isolation within an organization. But all too often, healthcare organizations learn this lesson the hard way, as the circumstances that allowed the event to occur in one department can leave the organization vulnerable in other areas.

Are you confident that your organization truly has a culture of safety?

Compass Clinical Consultings Patient Safety Assessment analyzes your current patient safety practices and processes to determine how effectively they prevent human errors and detect and correct system vulnerabilities and weaknesses that can lead to events of harm and adverse outcomes.

When conducting a Patient Safety Assessment, we…

  • Assess your current clinical practices against evidence-based practices related to avoiding preventable harm to patients and staff.
  • Analyze reports, concerns regarding accreditation and regulatory compliance, and safety-related documents for patterns and trends in adhering to nationally recognized standards of care and practice.
  • Interview and observe colleagues, leaders, and medical staff providers in their day-to-day operational activities to understand your culture, enabling us to work with you to develop a sustainable plan of correction that addresses human behaviors and process improvements.

Our dedicated team of nurse consultants, physician consultants, pharmacist consultants, and physical environment/life safety specialists brings a depth and breadth of expertise to help your organization look at patient safety from multiple perspectives so you don’t overlook an area of vulnerability. Additionally, the assessment is customized to fit the organization’s needs, based on factors such as patient population and history of safety events.

Workable Approach & Tools

We engage with your organization throughout the entire process to provide a workable approach and tools to enable both staff members and leadership to improve the quality of care provided to patients.
