The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) are a set of metrics that provide information on the potential for inpatient hospital complications and adverse events following surgeries, procedures, and childbirth. PSIs can be used to help hospitals identify potential adverse events that might need further evaluation, provide the opportunity to assess the incidence of adverse events and complications, and understand patient safety events on a broader level.

While we must continue to emphasize to all members of the care team that they are the front line to preventing errors, taking a systems or holistic approach will greatly assist in making adverse events rarer. Aiding in the implementation of the latter are many companies that provide incident reporting, analysis, and review systems.

Registered nurses, with targeted training, are the secret weapon in the race for comprehensive care coordination. Accountable care organizations. Patient-centered medical homes. Value-based reimbursements. Bundled payments. Healthcare is experiencing a revolution brought on by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that aims to put patients squarely in the middle of all their clini­cal and financial decisions. Payers, including government agencies and insurers, are tying the quality and safety of patient care to reimbursements, making patient-centered care a necessity in all settings.

The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patient’s healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And that’s how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology. By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. It’s also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to “Improve the accuracy of patient identification,” which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.

Delivering the best possible care to every patient is a complex, interconnected process that involves every department in a healthcare facility. From the moment a patient enters a facility, a wide range of activities must be performed by many different employees from different functional areas — in a timely and efficient way—to ensure the best possible outcome, including performing tests, collecting specimens, administering medications and delivering treatments. Each one of these activities must be coordinated and documented as part of an overall care plan. But the first step is making sure clinicians are treating the right patient—in the right way—every time. Zebra’s white paper explores the critical impact positive patient identification (PPID) has on patient safety throughout the administrative, diagnostic and treatment phases of a patient’s stay. The paper also explores how PPID can improve staff efficiency and help healthcare organizations meet the needs of changing patient dem

Sebasticook Valley Health’s Emergency Department found that when it came to obtaining medication history, DrFirst’s MedHx(SM) solution provided vast improvements over the built-in feed from their integrated electronic medical records system. The hospital did a side by side comparison of MedHx(SM) and their existing feed, and determined that MedHx(SM) provided superior results, which reduced staff time spent on medication reconciliation, improved patient safety and enabled the hospital pharmacy, as well as doctors and nurses, to be more proactive in pulling medication history upon patient admission.

Secure, efficient communication between doctors and staff is key to reliable patient care. For Groves Community Hospice, every situation involving patients requires rapid response; this poses a particular challenge, as more than 80 percent of the hospice staff work in the field. With so many doctors and staff off-site or on-call, and considering the inherent urgency of hospice care, Groves needed to streamline staff communications and enable a better way for physicians and staff to connect and discuss critical patient issues within a secure environment.

In 2010, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota underwent a renovation at its Minneapolis facility. The goal was to transform the entire location into a place where patients and families – who previously received care in a shared-space environment – would enjoy private, family-centric rooms. Such a renovation would also transform the way staff worked together. Minnesota Children’s used the project as an opportunity to reevaluate its entire workflow and communications infrastructure. Read this case study to learn how Minnesota Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota implemented AeroScout® Real-Time Staff Visibility Solutions to achieve a quieter patient environment, enhanced safety, and improved workflow.

Mobile devices help clinicians improve the quality of patient care and save lives by improving staff communication and collaboration, and by providing instant access to a wealth of mission-critical information — from real-time lab results to a change in a patient’s condition or verification of the “5 rights” of medication administration at the patient bedside. In addition, mobility also helps healthcare organizations comply with important governmental and regulatory safety standards, without tasking an already overburdened nursing staff with additional paperwork. This white paper provides guidance for planning and implementing a clinical mobility solution in today’s healthcare environment, including a five-step roadmap to help key stakeholders identify needs.

Dallas-based Parkland Health & Hospital implemented a Zebra technology solution to create a mobile-enabled workforce at its new state-of-the-art hospital campus. That mobile solution enabled the nursing staff to focus on what’s most important — patient care. The solution gave nurses the ability to communicate in real time, access right-now information and take the right action with that information. Parkland’s leadership was able to track all patient activities from positive patient identification and specimen collection to laboratory specimen tracking and pharmacy medication administration. Additionally, hospital staff communication with voice and secure texting, along with patient alerts and alarms—all help increase patient safety, care and satisfaction.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.

Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry. At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care. H
