This team’s goal is to review policies and suggest changes using evidence-based research to eradicate the serious safety events. A6b. National Benchmark of Performance; Plan to Measure Effectiveness It is quite obvious that the goal is to have zero serious safety events. Patient safety is of utmost importance to each and every licensed and unlicensed personnel that help care for that patient. We all want what is best for our patients and for them to heal. The way for them to heal is for there not to be any setbacks, such as serious safety events, that will hinder their healing process. All serious safety events are nationally reported and available to the public at any given time for any given facility. This can either bring the patient in for that specific facility to care for them or it can deter that patient due to their number of reportable events. It is every facility goal to have zero serious safety events. There are many different ways to measure the effectiveness of eliminating serious safety events. As previously mentioned, education is the best way to prevent problems. If that staff is well informed, they have the tools in their hands to do their part in preventing these serious safety events. Data can be gathered prior to implementing the change to get a baseline. After a set amount of time, re-evaluate the units to check and see if the number of serious safety events has diminished. At the end of the survey, re-evaluate for a final time to make sure the numbers are still declining. As long as the numbers are declining, the change has proven effective. If for some reason the numbers increase, the change needs to be re-evaluated and changed to bring those numbers back down.

    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.
