Week 4 Project
Risk management uses certain documents to track incidents. It will help you to become familiar with the kind of information that goes into these documents. This week, you will create and fill in a quality improvement chart for the high-risk area emergency room.
1. Design a chart to show the indicators, their measurements, and the expected and actual performance. Use the template to design your chart. Further, use 5 out of the 10 standards listed. Use the template below.
2. Select one of the fictional incidents you created last week ( the paper is attached). Describe the incident under Status.
3. For this incident, complete the Compliance section using fictitious data. The tracking of the indicators should correspond to the incident. That is, some failure of compliance may have led to the incident.
4. Develop a plan of correction to address the incident. Write a brief description under Plan of Correction
Use the matrix below to design your quality improvement chart. Show all the indicators you selected in the chart.
Quality Improvement Activity Schedule
Severity of Risk
Level of Performance / Threshold
Compliance in Percent
Plan of Correction
Under standards, you may include areas such as the following:
IC: Surveillance, Prevention, and Control of Infection HR: Management of Human Resources
EC: Management of the Environment of Care IM: Management of Information
MM: Medication Management LD: Leadership
NPSG: National Patient Safety Goals PI: Improving Organizational Performance
PC: Provision of Care, Treatment, and Services RI: Ethics, Rights, and Responsibilities
Severity of risk may be designated as follows:
H: High risk M/H: Medium/high risk M: Medium risk L: Low risk
Compliance (in percent) may be entered on a monthly, quarterly, bi-annual, or annual schedule. The matrix here shows quarterly compliance schedule. Adjust it as necessary.
To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
· Your assignment should be addressed in a 2- to 3-page document.Running head: RISK MANAGEMENT 1

Risk Management Incident in The Emergency Room Setting

HCM4002 Risk Management in Healthcare Setting
In the world today, risk has been defined by many scientists within various fields as an undefined occurrence or situation that has either a beneficial impact (opportunity) or a harmful impact (threat). Meanwhile, risk management concerns piloting risk management preparation, credentials, study, reactions and observing, and controlling the particular risk whenever it occurs.
Therefore, based on risk at the emergency room in a hospital and how we can manage that particular risk, it is advisable to check on some of the factors that generally lead to risk in an emergency room. They include; lack of communication between the doctors and nurses at the emergency room during surgery operation, for instance, lack of adequate knowledge or even experience among the doctors and the nurses in the emergency room, failure to perform recommended examination or operation in an emergency room it’s also one of the factors, inadequate clinical history documented about the patient by the assessment nurse or the triage in an emergency room and inability to interpret radiology examinations about the patient being attended to among other risk management factors.
Additionally, as a risk manager in a health institution, it is usually called upon to analyze the specific risk to determine the potential risk in developing the risk management plans. The process should answer some questions like: How could the risk possibly occur? How severe will the outcome if the risk occurs? What can be done to reduce the impact? What is the potential for exposure to such a risk? Therefore, based on the research, three different scenarios are clearly explained below to understand how, when, where, and why risk occurs in an emergency room and the causes of such occurrences.
Firstly, there is a change of shifts by the healthcare providers or the assessment nurses, for instance, those during the day with those at night. For example, when a patient at the emergency room is at risk of being prescribed a different medication from the earlier nurse or doctor attending to them before prescribed. Since the patient in an emergency room would not tell but to wait for the medication, the risk will be if the assessment nurse did not provide pertinent information about the patient’s progress. (“5 Steps to Any Effective Risk Management Process”, 2020)
Additionally, under change of shifts, a scenario where the patient is advised to revisit the emergency room at a particular day would be a hazard when the patient finds another doctor who didn’t advise them to come on the very day. The doctor may ignore the patient since he has patients to attend to that day. It would be difficult for the patient to fully receive the recommended medication than when the doctor or assessment
