2014 PDC Summit


Designing for Safety: Assessing Risks in the Health Care Built Environment


Mar 18, 2014 3:00pm ‐ Mar 18, 2014 4:00pm

Standard: $30.00
Members: $15.00

Description

In the era of accountable care, hospitals are no longer reimbursed for serious adverse events that are considered largely preventable. The built environment can contribute – as an underlying condition – to such events. The presenters will introduce a toolkit being developed to support the new FGI Guidelines safety risk assessment requirement using focused applications for considering patient, staff, and visitor safety during project planning and throughout the design process. This session will enable attendees to:

  • Explain how the built environment acts as an underlying condition for many safety-related events in health care facilities.
  • Discuss issues to be considered in a safety risk assessment during design.
  • Describe different methods that can be used to proactively evaluate safe design.
  • Identify when and how a safety risk assessment can be applied to a specific project.
