RISK REGISTER

Log Risks and Hazards and create multiple risk registers to manage and monitor current and potential risks

Create records describing potential risks and detail any contingency planning for each event. A risk record can also be completed and linked to the individual incident, near-miss and complaint to create a better profile of your hospital's overall risk.

For each record, you can build a risk ratings history, allocate and notify staff of responsibilities and actions, respond to relevant parties and track the history of each record to finalisation.

Allocate potential risks to a risk register, and split the register into groups or allocate them to responsible staff.

NSQHS Standards can be allocated and records can be scheduled for discussion at forthcoming meetings, and reminders sent before the meeting. Feedback can be sent directly to staff to keep them informed of follow up actions and progress. Documents can be linked to each record

INCIDENTS AND NEAR MISSES

Analyse and take action on incidents and near misses, and provide feedback to staff reporting the incident

Record any incidents and near misses that may occur, including first to attend and contributing factor details. Complete a risk analysis for each record and link similar incidents or near misses to the same risk analysis.

A notification will be auto-generated and sent to the responsible person(s) once the incident has been reported.

Reports include incident clusters and quarterly trends, incidents per bed days and medication incidents. Near misses can be filtered from reports or reported on separately. Also, reports can be de-identified to ensure patient and doctor privacy

COMPLAINTS AND OTHER FEEDBACK
