Medical Errors

Submit a paper that identifies and examines two distinct types of sentinel events that frequently occur in healthcare organizations. The error types that you select must be significantly different; for example, patient suicide and wrong-site surgery.

In writing this paper, you should consider and address (as necessary) the following:
•Identify, compare, and contrast the system factors that influence organizational performance.
•Identify, compare, and contrast the processes and techniques that can be used to investigate, prevent, and control these types of events now and in the future.
•Identify, compare, and contrast the measures that can be used to assess the performance of the organization and the risk management plan in this area as it relates to patient safety.
