Systems engineering initiative for patient safety (seips)

 

The purpose of this assignment is to assess how quality improvement can be used to reduce errors and improve patient safety.

Human error is a concern that affects every aspect of health care and is one that providers must account for when creating systems and processes to ensure patient safety. The Systems Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety (SEIPS) was created as a quality improvement tool to better understand the elements that threaten safety and to recommend ways organizations can improve quality outcomes by reducing risk.

In an essay of 1,000-1,250 words, evaluate the following aspects as they relate to SEIPS:

  • Describe the seven types of errors that can occur in a health care environment. Provide examples of each. Are all these errors preventable? Describe measures that could have been implemented to improve patient safety and reduce the occurrence of each error you described.
  • Discuss the framework of the SEIPS tool and how it is used within a health care environment. Compare the SEIPS tool with one other error-reduction strategy presented in the textbook and explain when each tool might be applied.
  • Explain the positive effect that the SEIPS tool can have on the reduction of errors in high-risk health care settings.
  • Discuss the relationship between CQI and SEIPS in producing quality outcomes for health care organizations. How does improving quality outcomes with a patient-centric focus help to promote a concern for the common good within the public arena?

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
