Meet TapRooT® Instructor: Steve Swarthout

steve-swarthoutSteve Swarthout is President and Senior Partner of Performance Improvement of Virginia, Inc. He has 40 years of engineering/equipment troubleshooting experience and has taught TapRooT® to thousands of people. He has held a Senior Reactor Operator license at a commercial nuclear utility and facilitated over 100 incident investigations.

Steve is presenting Using Nuclear Industry Analysis Concepts in Healthcare Industry Sentinel Event Investigations at the 2009 TapRooT® Summit.  This session will examine how to determine generic causes and how to look for other potential problems which might not have been identified in the initial investigation. There will be examples from the medical and non-medical field. Participants are invited to bring an investigation, which they will use to evaluate for generic concerns.

If you work in healthcare, the opportunity to bring an investigation for free evaluation is just one reason to sign up for the Eliminating Hospital Sentinel Events Track at the Summit in Nashville, Tennessee, October 5-7, 2009!
