THUR08 - Mistake Proofing: Achieving Zero Defects in Instrument Pre-Cleaning


Oct 8, 2020 1:45pm ‐ Oct 8, 2020 2:30pm

Description

In December 2018, an urban hospital evaluated instrument pre-cleaning processes in response to three of their system hospitals facing related regulatory deficiencies, lack of standardization and poor adherence to current practices. This session will describe how a hospital worked with system partners to simplify, standardize, and sustain a previously error-prone process and transition high-risk, low utilization areas to disposable alternatives within a variety of care areas. Approaching this process using quality improvement methodology resulted in efficient use of resources, standardization across the system and robust regulatory readiness outcomes.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify key strategies in developing a sustainable process for instrument pre-cleaning and disposal practices.
  • Identify opportunities to simplify high risk workflows through cost/benefit analysis
  • Discuss risks that emerge from process variation and the barriers that can prevent adherence.

Speaker(s):

  • Anne Belde, CPPM, Quality Improvement Specialist, Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital
  • Kyrstyn Specht, RN, BSN, Patient Safety Specialist, Park Nicollet Health Services
