Description

Medical errors contribute to millions of injuries, deaths, excessive cost, and unnecessary suffering each year. The need for understanding the causes and preventive measures related to these errors has never been greater. This instructional course has been designed to describe the scope of these preventable mistakes, and ways in which the healthcare system can identify them and ensure that they don’t continue to occur. Reporting and tracking of certain medical errors is required, some by state law and others to maintain accreditation for payor reimbursement. Additionally, some state professional Boards, such as the Florida Board of Nursing, require continuing education on this subject. This 2-hour course fulfills this professional Board requirement.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1.Define medical error, adverse event, “never event” and sentinel event.
2.Discuss the scope of medical errors in the United States in terms of monetary cost and lives affected.
3.Explain at least two system analysis models.
4.Discuss national/state mandatory error reporting requirements.
5.List at least 5 types of medical errors and their causes.
6.Describe SBAR.
7.Recognize appropriate and inappropriate documentation.
