Description

The emergency department is a high-risk area that faces a lot of patient safety challenges, including crowding and boarding, standing orders, restraint and seclusion, grievances and complaints, MRI safety, medication errors, alarm fatigue, and much more.

During this program, our medico-legal expert will discuss these challenges and provide patient safety initiatives you can implement right away. She will cover TJC patient flow standards, TJC tracers, and ACEP and ENA recommendations for reducing boarding and overcrowding. Additionally, she will review the ED trigger tools, ISMP guidelines for IV Push, the ECRI Institute’s top 10 patient safety concerns related to the ED, and evidence-based recommendations to help ensure your ED patient safety checklist is CMS and TJC compliant.
