How can you be confident that your healthcare organization truly has a culture of safety?

A Patient Safety Assessment

A Patient Safety Assessment is a review and analysis of 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.

How is a Patient Safety Assessment Performed?

A Patient Safety Assessment includes…

  • Assessment of your current clinical practices against evidence-based practices related to avoiding preventable harm to patients and staff.
  • Analysis of 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.
  • Interviews and observations of 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.

Sustainable Patient Safety Plan

The focus is not on just assessing patient safety, but on creating and implementing a sustainable plan to address any safety concerns identified.

Sentinel Events, Near Misses?

Has your organization experienced adverse events, sentinel events, or near misses? Don’t wait for the next adverse or sentinel event to occur in your organization. Equip your organization to make safety your top concern. Undergo a Patient Safety Assessment.
