Through ECRI Institute Patient Safety Organization (PSO) and our INsight® Risk Assessments, ECRI Institute has a wealth of data that drives everything that we do. Thousands of healthcare providers across the spectrum of care have participated in INsight assessments and millions of events and near misses have been submitted to our PSO, and we want to share some of the highlights.
- Between 2011 and 2013, workplace assaults ranged from 23,540 and 25,630 annually, with 70 to 74% occurring in healthcare and social service settings.
- The OSHA-recordable workplace violence injury incidence rate increased 65% for all healthcare personnel 2012-2014
- Nursing Assistants increased significantly
- Rates did not change for physicians, dentists, interns or residents
Based on these alarming statistics, we created an INsight assessment to help healthcare providers uncover potential risks with behavioral health patients. ECRI Institute’s web-based risk assessment provides perspectives from front line staff to leadership to help you make sure your organization is protected. Are you doing everything you can to minimize the risks?
