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.
We have identified 7,613 events related to patient identification mix-ups. Not providing care to the correct patient can have deadly consequences. Based on this alarming number, we created an INsight assessment to help healthcare providers uncover potential patient identification risks.
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?
