Use the internet to identify a real-world example of a healthcare error that impacted patient safety. Use the readings and your knowledge of risk management and quality/performance improvement to write a report to the chief executive and board of governors of this organization stating your assessment and recommendations for improvement. Your report should describe this situation and the impact on patient safety:
- Who was affected and how did it influence quality service delivery at this facility?
- How was this event handled by the healthcare leaders and internal stakeholders? By external stakeholders?
- What recommendations do you have for performance improvement to prevent this situation or event from reoccurring?
