Preventable medical errors are actually rising by 1% each year, according to the National Quality Forum publication, 34 Safe Practices for Better Healthcare. Eighteen types of medical errors account for 2.4 million extra hospital days and $9.3 billion in excess care. To avoid reductions in CMS payouts, hospitals must start evaluating ways to proactively reduce errors and adverse events.
During this program, our expert will discuss CMS Hospital CoPs and TJC requirements on patient safety, including the 2015 TJC Patient Safety System chapter. This program will also delve into the issue of non-punitive environments, reporting medication errors, Just Culture theory, adverse events, drug incompatibilities and the related CMS and TJC standards.
Our CMS expert will discuss the balance of a non-punitive medical error environment with the Just Culture theory and how to integrate the free Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program toolkit from AHRQ into your daily operations.
