This new committee gives staff another opportunity to bring issues of Quality and Safety forward. Champions will bring forward opportunities they see in their practice, in near misses, or safety reports to continue to strive for the highest level of quality and safety for our patients, their families and the MGH community.
For the SAFER Fair committee champions focused on medication safety, including guess the weight of a pumpkin and converting it into kg.. They also focused on staff safety including MOAB training and the suicide prevention safety checklist.
Champions reviewed and discussed the new Blood product Administration Module. An advisory was sent out regarding completion; as a reminder don’t forget to complete the blood transfusion when it’s given because you can accidentally click on the wrong row if it’s not completed.
John Driscoll from Police and Security spoke with the champions on MOAB training and the disruptive patient icon.
