CULTURE OF SAFETY AT PERSONAL HEALTH CARE
At Personal Health Care our Culture of Safety is a just, reporting and learning culture where all employees feel safe raising questions and concerns and reporting safety events in an environment that emphasizes a nonpunitive response to errors and near misses. Our team regularly collects information from our employees and patients to learn from errors and successes, and openly shares this data and information to apply best practices and improve work processes and patient outcomes.
We do the kind thing
When an unanticipated adverse event occurs, the patients and families have the right to understand…
- What happened
- How it happened
- What we are doing to prevent this type of event from happening again
We do the best thing
Despite our best efforts and intentions, adverse events sometimes happen:
- Report an adverse event immediately
- Participate fully in the investigation
- Seek or provide emotional support for all members of the clinical team involved in the event
We do the right thing
Start by contacting the Risk Manager for support and guidance. In collaboration with the clinical team, we will approach the patient and the family and:
- Acknowledge what happened
- Be empathetic
- Explain what happened
- Follow through with the family
We do the safe thing
Personal Health Care is concerned about the safety of our patients, their families, and our employees:
- When the investigation is complete, use the lessons learned to avoid repeated harm and hold ourselves and others accountable
- Recognize that an adverse event can cause emotional trauma, we are here to support you, please reach out to us
