Assignment paper: Organizational Risk Management Interview

The purpose of this assignment is to gain real-world insight into how risk management programs operate within health care organizations. You may fabricate an interview if you cannot find a Healthcare Organization Risk Manager person to interview.

Choose a local health care organization (Houston, Texas) where you can conduct an interview with a risk management staffer. This organization could be your current workplace or another health care facility in your area. Acute care, urgent care, big multiprovider private medical clinics, assisted living facilities, and community/public health clinical facilities are all excellent choices for meeting the assignment’s needs. Select an individual (or fabricate one) who can provide sufficient information regarding how their organization manages risk within its facility to answer the questions below.

In your interview, address the following:

  1. Risk management strategies used in the organization’s risk control program, along with specific examples.
  2. How the facility’s educational risk management program addresses key professional, legal, and ethical issues, such as prevention of negligence, malpractice litigation, and vicarious liability.
  3. Policies the facility has implemented that address how to manage emergency triage in high‐risk areas of health care service delivery (e.g., narcotics inventories, declared pregnancy policies, blood-borne disease sector, etc.).
  4. Challenges the organization faces in managing and controlling high-risk health care (e.g., infectious diseases, nuclear medicine, abortion, class 4 narcotics/opioids, etc.).
  5. Strategies the facility utilizes to monitor, evaluate, and maintain compliance within its risk management program.

After conducting the interview, compose a 750‐1,000 word summary analysis of the interview that includes the questions above, in conjunction with the interviewee’s responses. In addition, include the following elements in your response:

  1. An assessment of the organization’s risk management program, including how it attends to high-risk health care and legal concerns.
  2. Action steps you would take to improve one area of the organization’s risk management program, along with your rationale for doing so.

Cite appropriate references as needed to support your statements and rationale. Minimum x3 sources.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style, Times Roman style 12 size font.
