Abstract

Specific Aims:

  1. To maintain the ED team's high rate of accuracy in data collection
  2. To begin team participation in corrective action planning
  3. To improve interdepartmental problem solving

Conclusion

Open communication about errors among all collaborating departments, combing with a shared approach to solving them:

  • improved morale and perception of error tracking by the team
  • led to a decrease in errors overall, and
  • increased interdepartmental collaboration

When all members of the interdepartmental team work together with a positive approach to corrective action, improvement in error rates is a natural outcome of the solutions derived.
