3. Provide and implement Computer Provider Order Entry (CPOE). CPOE is a digital system where providers can directly place orders electronically; these orders will then be directly transmitted to the intended recipient. Providing and implementing CPOE will increase efficiency and time management while also reducing mistakes caused by human error. Human error mistakes cased by eligible handwriting, abbreviation, and lack of knowledge could be eliminated using CPOE writing. “A classic study of inpatient errors found that approximately 90% occurred at either the ordering or transcribing stage.” (Patient Safety Network, 2018) Other benefits of implementing CPOE are 3

Case Study averting problems with similar medication names, drug interactions, and specification errors. CPOE is also an effective tool to be used for ordering labs, radiology tests and procedures such as catheter placement. The use of a checklist during a handoff can help providers correctly exchange information and thereby increase the adequacy of the handoff. 4. Implement hospital-wide communication technology via the Voalte messaging communication program. This program will allow healthcare team members to use a desktop computer or hand-held smart-phone to send secured patient information to other members of the healthcare team, improving healthcare communication challenges between team members across the multidisciplinary field of patient care. “The benefits of texting are numerous. Communication is convenient, quick, just-in-time, in real time, and remotely accessible; wait time for call-backs is reduced; and provider, caregiver, and office workflow is more efficient and productive” (McCartney, 2015). Desktop and smart phone Voalte messaging programs can be used for staff to communicate to one another. Voalte smart phones will provide secure texting of patient information between healthcare team members on the go. Communication devices provided by the healthcare facility with protected messaging abilities will enhance communication between healthcare team members. Communication devices will support and improve safe patient-centered communication while increasing optimum patient outcomes. TIMEFRAME 4

Case Study Change takes time and recognizing the need for change is the first step. The time it takes to implementing the change can vary. Each of the four safety elements comes with its own unique challenges and the timeframe for implementation will be different for each element. To implement a daily huddle, leadership such as nurse manager and charge nurse should develop an outline of the information that should be communicated at huddle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
