Risk factors associated in the healthcare setting can involve falls, medication errors, and hospital acquired infections. When incidents involving falls, medications, and hospital acquired infections occur an incident report is done and submitted to risk management. Risk management receives an incident report upon the situation occurring and it is evaluated to see how it can be prevented from occurring again in the future.
As falls are evaluated it has been seen as the most common adverse safety events that occur in the healthcare settings due to patients having unsteady gait, medication, alter mental status and other medical situations such as seizures (Callis, 2016). Another risk factor that occurs in the healthcare is medication errors due to the many factors. Such factors include provider orders, patient, care team, work environment, task, computer system and the primary secondary care interface (ORGANIZATION, 2017). The third risk factor mentioned is hospital acquired infections which occur due to healthcare provider and patient contact or patient being immunocompromised with long stays in the healthcare settings.
Risk assessment plays a part in evaluating the situations that occur and considering what positive or negative outcome or consequences can be identified and addressed(Youngberg,2011). It is done not to play the blame game but to help decrease falls, medication errors, and infections from occurring in the healthcare facility and see how risk factors can be evaluated to help patients.
