PS ebookAmerican Data Network has made available a free resource aimed at helping healthcare organizations better understand the impact that event reporting can have on the  propagation of safe culture and the reduction of medical errors.

ADN’s new eBook, Reporting Patient Safety to Mitigate Risk and Injury, offers healthcare providers direction as to when to report an event, what constitutes a reportable event and which pieces of information are most critical when it comes to learning from circumstances with the potential to cause harm.

The eBook emphasizes the value associated with reporting near misses and unsafe conditions that don’t necessarily involve patients but carry the potential to identify weaknesses in processes and systems while providing opportunity for employee engagement in safety culture. The resource also identifies specific strategies that leaders can implement to promote reporting and cultivate a culture of safety.
