About each book in the package:
You already capture the data. Now use it to make real improvements in your patient care. This new resource provides practical techniques to help you better analyze your occurrence reporting process, use your data to gain superior insight into why errors occur at your organization, and make improvements that decrease adverse events and enhance patient care.
You cannot afford for the processes in your facility to be anything less than perfect. This resource shows you how to identify where certain processes fail or how they might fail in the future, and how to make preventative adjustments. Through process mapping, FMEAs, and change management strategies, author Ken Rohde gives you actionable tips and tools you can use to break down your current process into the micro-steps, evaluate where those processes are at risk, and learn how you can prevent them from failing.
Are you letting your data control you? The wealth of information you’re trying to make sense of can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. This easy-to-understand resource breaks down exactly what type of data you need and how to manipulate it once it’s collected to make positive changes in your facility.
Take the fear out of FMEAs. This practical book and CD set outlines how to best administer an FMEA in the healthcare setting. The result is a comprehensive tool to help your facility better evaluate and refine processes, and document your results for Joint Commission compliance.
Serious events happen every day in hospitals, physician practices, clinics, and care facilities—some with very severe outcomes.
Beyond Root Cause Analysis helps risk managers, quality professionals, nursing leadership, oversight committees, and senior leadership understand how to approach adverse events, figure out what caused them, and implement realistic improvements.
