This presentation will focus on the experience of Maine Medical Center and Cedars Sinai Medical Center in implementing the recommendations of NPSF’s recent report, RCA2: Improving Root Cause Analyses and Actions to Prevent Harm. Maine Medical Center, a 637 licensed-bed teaching hospital located in Portland, Maine, will discuss their adverse event assimilation and notification processes, as well as the inclusion of involved clinicians in the RCA2 team and event time line preparation. Cedars Sinai Medical Center, a non-profit, tertiary 958-bed hospital and multi-specialty academic health science center located in Los Angeles, California, will share their process for choosing the correct events to undergo RCA2, and their innovative use of their Simulation Center for completing RCAs. These organizations will be joined by Dr. Jeffrey Cooper, a patient safety expert who is dedicated to the use of simulation in health care as a means to improve the process of education and training and to avoid risk to patients.
This event is one of four webcasts in the NPSF Spotlight Series: Implementing RCA2: Lessons from the Trenches. See here for more information on the NPSF Spotlight Series.
