Patient Safety Stats Are Staggering

• • •

Have you become numb to the fact that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the USA?

Only cancer and heart disease are deadlier. It’s estimated as many as 400,000 of us experience preventable harm because of medical errors each year.  Just in case you ARE feeling a little numb, how about this sobering fact from a CNBC article:

“The U.S. patient-care study, which was released in 2016, explored death-rate data for eight consecutive years. The researchers discovered that based on a total of 35,416,020 hospitalizations, there was a pooled incidence rate of 251,454 deaths per year — or about 9.5 percent of all deaths — that stemmed from medical error.”

That means if you are one of the unlucky 400,000 people that are harmed in any given year, you have almost one in five chance that the harm results in your death. 

If you are passionate about patient safety, the TapRooT® Patient Safety Course is an excellent step toward improving patient safety and the way you solve problems. TapRooT®’s root cause analysis framework provides you expert guidance leading to consistent results. Results that will show your leadership a whole new level of patient safety because of your passion and effort. Please join me in attending TapRooT®’s Patient Safety 2-Day course at our Pre-Summit event at Horseshoe Bay Resort on March 9th and 10th. Let’s change the way we solve problems for better results.  #stoptheinsanity!

What you will take away from this training…

You will learn how to conduct investigations using TapRooT®’s expert root cause analysis framework that guides the investigator through the investigation, RCA, and corrective action processes.

You won’t have to depend on your level of experience or be an expert at human performance to find the real root cause of any patient safety event using TapRooT®.

As you follow the process, you will create and implement stronger corrective actions than disciplining, retraining, and developing new or improved policies and procedures.

You will gain the tools and understanding to reduce or eliminate the risk of any event happening again.

Even better, you will learn how to use TapRooT® proactively. You will eliminate future patient safety events by identifying the root causes of near-misses or poor audit findings.

Why wait until you have a major patient safety event to identify and fix root causes? In most cases, major events are the result of several mistakes lining up exactly wrong that day. Fixing the root causes of those individual mistakes before they line up exactly wrong will save lives.
