3 Use of Patient Safety Net What is Patient Safety Net® (PSN)? PSN is an anonymous online reporting system used at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

Please Note! We do not use PSN to track events that reach staff, if you slip, trip, or have a needle stick, please report those using an Accident Illness Report form.

4 Use of Patient Safety Net The Role of PSN at the SCCA Learning from Events, Near Misses, and Unsafe Conditions is key in monitoring and improving our process for safety and efficiency. oA system flaw or gap can go undetected without your PSN report. oWhen an error occurs, the review often uncovers system vulnerabilities that could be improved upon. oLearning from PSN events help the SCCA to build better systems to promote patient safety and support your work. oThe ultimate goal is to protect patients from harm.

5 Use of Patient Safety Net Some Examples of Event Reports: – Medication Events Medication Delays – Laboratory or Specimen Events Not Completed Results Delayed – Patient/Visitor Falls – Communication/Care Coordination Problems Scheduling Issues Unclear Orders – Equipment, Supply, or Device events – Environmental Hazard

9 4 321 Patient Safety Net Navigation Concepts to Remember When Entering an Event The intent of PSN is to track system issues in patient care, not to finger point. When entering an event, be as objective as possible. PSN events can be reported anonymously. If you do not document your name at the end of the report, you will not be identified as the reporter. Enter “Research Patient” as the first two words in the event description.
