Re: Topic 4 DQ 1

We have a safety drill committee that plans practice drills such as fire, code blue, active shooter, bomb threat, and weather disasters. Each quarter one of these drills are practiced by all the employees. The safety committee is led by a safety manager and then there is a safety person from each of our radiology facilities. The committee hands out written information on what to do in any of these situations and provides each facility with a binder with the information. I think this is a great way to go over these drills. I used to work at a place that just handed out paperwork on what to do. I think everyone learns much more by participating in the drill. We all hope we never have to go through any of these for real, but we must always be prepared just in case. These drills reduce my organizations risk because the employees will go what to do and will hopefully not panic in a real-life situation.

Re: Topic 4 DQ 1

At Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC), one of the safety committees responsible for reducing risks within the department of pathology and laboratory services (DPALS) is the quality assurance (QA) section. This consists of an employee structure with a chief, supervisory staff, and technicians. These members work with each other daily to check and maintain processes that reduce safety risks to personnel working in the DPALS area of BAMC as well as reducing the risks of faulty test results being released for patients. This section of DPALS is also responsible for approving quality improvement processes that increase the quality of patient test results being released as well as improve collaboration with healthcare providers throughout BAMC. This department works with safety officers, fire safety officers, and infection control officers designated in each of the individual sections of DPALS to ensure that safety standards are upheld in each section without a member of QA having to monitor the section throughout the workday. The QA department is responsible for reporting quality assurance test results to CAP, the accreditation agency responsible for accrediting the laboratory at BAMC, as well as any safety events concerning unsafe conditions to hospital leadership and the Joint Commission. Any additional publication of survey results and research is used for internal purposes to ensure excellence in the reporting of test results and to ensure the safety of DPALS staff members while working. Due to the large size of the DPALS department, this safety committee is an effective group to address the safety concerns within the DPALS area. If the DPALS area were to rely on smaller subcommittees within each section, DPALS would risk losing unity in their processes and the continuity of the risk management process between each section would suffer.

Re: Topic 4 DQ 1

A safety committee that meets within my organization is the Infection Prevention team. This team consists of the director of infection prevention, leaders from each service area, and the CNO. Currently this team meets weekly due to Covid. They review current patients within our hospital system with Covid and any PUI patients (patients under investigation). The weekly discussion assesses the needs throughout each service line (inpatient hospital, home health, rehab hospital, outpatient therapy, outpatient surgery, hospice, private duty services, etc.) for PPE.

Typically, the team meets quarterly (outside a pandemic) and is led by the CNO. Meetings discuss PPE, hand washing statistics (assessed on a routine basis throughout the system), any new infections such as Covid or ebola, and needlesticks. The group focuses on outcomes and standards throughout the organization related to Joint Commission requirements as well as service line specific standards. Catheter associated UTIs and postoperative wound infections are two of the important outcome measures discussed during these committee meetings.

The attendees take important decisions or procedure changes back to their individual service lines as regulations could pose differently for each area. These decisions are relayed to field staff (home health) or inpatient hospital nurses through routine staff meetings. This allows pertinent information to be transmitted to the correct people instead of all information going to all hospital personnel saving everyone time.
